Making his second start of the spring, Yu Darvish walked four batters on his way to giving up two runs in three innings against the Indians on Tuesday.
Darvish started the game with back-to-back walks, only to have both Michael Brantley and Asdrubal Cabrera get thrown out attempting steals of second base. A better second inning followed, but Darvish gave up a two-run single to Lou Marson and then two more walks in the third inning.
The plan was for Darvish to throw about 50 pitches in the game, but he ended up at 61, as manager Ron Washington allowed him to finish the third inning. Travis Hafner flied to the warning track with two on to end the frame.
In all 29 of his 61 pitches were balls, according to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News.
Darvish will make his next start on March 19 against the Brewers.
