Yu Darvish’s first World Series appearances were anything but ideal. In fact, they were a complete debacle.
The Los Angeles Dodgers starter was lit up by the Houston Astros before being pulled in the second inning of Game 3 last week and, unfortunately for Darvish and the Dodgers, the exact same situation played out in Game 7 on Wednesday night.
Darvish allowed three hits in 1.2 innings of work, including a two-run home run to the red-hot George Springer, and by the time he got the yank his team was down 5-0.
Darvish, acquired in a July trade from the Texans Rangers, finished the World Series with a 21.60 ERA.
Here’s some of the more memorable social media reaction to Darvish’s Game 7 performance. And, yes, there were plenty of GIFs.
Thank you, Yu Darvish for single handedly ruining the last 30 years of my life waiting for this World Series.
