Why did they pull Darvish? He could have still thrown a 1 hitter which is a big deal.
They usually don't let anybody throw more than 100 pitches in their first start of the season. Darvish was up to 111 after the hit so I'm sure they wanted to get him out of there just as a precaution. They need a healthy Darvish more than they needed to leave him in there to finish the 1 hitter.
