(KGTV) - Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Yu Darvish is taking responsibility for the team's World Series loss.
Following the team's 5-1 loss to the Houston Astros Wednesday, Darvish took to Twitter to thank fans and take the blame for Los Angeles' loss.
"The World Series resulted in a disappointment due to my lack of performance, but I will carry this experience to the future," Darvish posted in a statement.

Darvish pitched in two World Series games, giving up nine runs - eight of which were earned - in 3 1/3 innings. However, many on social media have pointed out the Dodgers also left 10 runners on base and 1-13 with runners in scoring position in Game 7.

Dodgers are 1-for-13 with runners in scoring position and have left 10 on base in a game they trail 5-1. So there's your difference.
