SAN DIEGO (AP) — Yu Darvish rebounded from the shortest outing of his career by dominating into the seventh inning and the San Diego Padres beat the Atlanta Braves 2-1 despite having just three hits.

Darvish allowed a run and struck out eight in 6 2/3 innings against the World Series champions after covering just 1 2/3 innings and allowing nine runs against San Francisco on Tuesday.

The Padres' 35-year-old ace had command throughout, allowing his only run on Marcell Ozuna's homer in the seventh.

His gem allowed San Diego to split the four-game series.
