Yu Darvish, Kyle Schwarber, and Tyler Chatwood had impressive days regardless of the circumstances, and the fact that they helped bring home the sweep of the Brewers is all the better.
But it turns out, each of that trio is actually sick right now – and still managed to perform like that:
Darvish ill, was gassed according to Maddon after the 5th. He said Chatwood & Schwarber weren’t 100% either…something going around the clubhouse. “Don’t shake their hands right now.”

Don’t listen to Maddon! Being sick is apparently the secret to having a great day!
Chatwood got a three-inning save, allowing just one run and striking out five over his three innings of work.
Schwarber walked and had two hits, including this no-freaking-doubter shot to left:
And, of course, Darvish shoved for five impressive innings against a strong lineup of lefties: 5.0 IP, 1 ER, 5 H, 0 BB, 8 K. Dude is still on fire.
Good day from a sick group of guys. Ope, wait, looks like Victor Caratini is gonna go off tomorrow:
