Yu Darvish Perfect Game Ruined on Controversial Call in 6th, No-Hitter Lost in 8th Against Astros [GIF]

By Michael Shamburger

Yu Darvish put on another spectacular display on Monday. Darvish struck out 15 batters on 115 pitches and had a no-hitter into the 8th inning against Houston when Carlos Corporan belted a home run to right field. Darvish was perfect into the 6th inning when umpire Ron Kulpa made a controversial ball four call to put Jonathan Villar on first. This is the fifth 14-strikeout game for Darvish this season and the first 15-strikeout game of his career.
