Last night the Texas Rangers beat the Cincinnati Reds 6-5 to split the two game set. Yu Darvish was on the mound, but being in a national league park, he also took some hacks at the plate, hitting a long home run to centerfield. How about some crazy Yu stats? Darvish becomes the 7678th player and the 5th Japanese pitcher to homer in the major leagues.
