Yu Darvish threw six innings of four-hit ball to earn his seventh win Wednesday as the San Diego Padres beat the Toronto Blue Jays 2-0.

Darvish (7-6) loaded the bases with two outs in the first inning in his only jam as he struck out seven while walking three in a 100-pitch outing at Rogers Centre.

"My form was good right from the bullpen, my pitches had good movement, and my body moved really well, too," the right-hander said. "It's great that it led to getting this result."

Manny Machado's two-run single in the fifth off Jose Berrios (8-7) produced the game's only runs.

Minnesota Twins right-hander Kenta Maeda continues to improve in his comeback from Tommy John elbow surgery, which he underwent in 2021. He held the Seattle Mariners to two runs on three hits over 6-1/3 innings but did not get a decision in his team's 6-3 win.

"This is the best I've been this year," Maeda said. "I had a good feel for my pitches, and my velocity came with it. It's huge to feel no anxiety about my elbow."

MLB home run leader Shohei Ohtani walked four times and scored as the Los Angeles Angels swept a three-game series against the New York Yankees for the first time since July 2009 with a 7-3 win.

Seiya Suzuki, who had four hits on Tuesday, went 2-for-3 on Wednesday as the Chicago Cubs beat the Washington Nationals 8-3.
