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.
