The Cubs beat the Marlins on Monday 7-2. It was Cubs pitcher, Yu Darvish’s first win of the season but his pitching went viral for a completely different reason.
He walked four batters, and hit Lewis Brinson with a 99-mph fastball…that ricocheted off Brinson, hit the Cubs catcher and the home-plate umpire.

This was Yu’s response to his viral pitch:
When asked to explain how he could walk no batters last time out, then four on Monday, Yu quipped: “I'm Yu Darvish." #Cubs
