Cubs’ Darvish yields HR to 1st batter of spring, settles in

MESA, Ariz. (AP) — Yu Darvish’s spring training debut began exactly the way he predicted.

First pitch, home run.

Orlando Arcia connected right away, launching a drive over the fence in left center field, prompting the Chicago Cubs right-hander to rapidly snap his glove open and closed, imploring the plate umpire to give him another ball.

“I knew that he was going to swing, and also this is first game, so I want to throw a fastball, a get-me-over fastball for a strike,” Darvish said. “So I was thinking last night if Arcia is the leading (off), he’s going to hit the homer. So it happened.’’
