Dodgers left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu entered tonight’s outing against the Cardinals as a question mark after he lasted just three innings in his start in Game 3 against the Braves during the NLDS. However, he has bounced back in impressive fashion while putting the Dodgers in position for their first win of the NLCS.

Ryu has handed things over to the bullpen after tossing seven scoreless innings in Game 3. The southpaw allowed just three hits and one walk on the night while striking out four. He didn’t allow his first hit until a leadoff single by David Freese in the fifth inning, which ended up being the best scoring chance of the night for the Cardinals. However, a brain cramp by pinch-runner Daniel Descalso helped him escape the inning without any damage.

The Dodgers still lead it 2-0 as we move to the top of the eighth inning at Dodger Stadium. Brian Wilson has taken over for Ryu.

    9 runs in three games by both teams combined.

    I don’t know if this is absurdly great pitching or absurdly terrible hitting.

      Both teams did both fairly well in the regular season and both are in the NLCS, so I’d have to go with pretty good pitching. I doubt either (other than Ethier) has forgotten how to hit.

    It’s not over yet. Nolasco will do the same tomorrow.

    Too bad John Jay has no idea how to play outfield, or this game would still be a scoreless tie.

      And if Ethier wasn’t playing a gimpy CF, we would have taken the first game 2-0. As fans we could play that game all day.

      More than anything, I’m excited for more of this series; the teams look so well-matched.

    This is reminiscent of the ’66 series where pitching ruled & hitting was rare.

    Great effort from Ryu. There has been speculation that he had been hiding an injury. What a great signing by the Dodgers. With all the attention going to Puig and Ramirez, I really don’t think Los Angeles is in this position without Ryu.
