Yu Darvish pitched seven innings of three-hit, one-run ball to earn his first win of the season and first with the San Diego Padres in a 6-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday night at PNC Park in Pittsburgh.

In his third start of the season, Darvish (1-0), who had a no-decision in his previous two outings, struck out six and walked one in a 95-pitch effort. His only run allowed came on a Phillip Evans double in the third, which tied the game at a run apiece.
