The Oakland A's defeated the Chicago Cubs 7-2 on Sunday afternoon. The North Siders record is currently an impressive 11-4-3 this spring.

Newcomer Yu Darvish got the nod on the mound for his second spring start and pitched 3 1/13 innings (55 pitches) giving up two runs but striking out five batters including four in a row.

Overall this spring, Darvish has a 1-0 record with 5.06 ERA with nine strikeouts and 1.31 WHIP.

“I think right now I’m really where I should be,” he said to reporters. “All of my pitches, fastball, changeup, cutters, those were all good. I usually have trouble with one pitch that needs work in March, but at this point, everything seems very good.”
