UPDATE: And so much for that. After a super-long bottom of the seventh inning in which the Dodgers scored three runs and Ryu reached on an error and ran the bases, Todd Frazier led off the top of the eighth inning with a double down the left field line to break up the perfect game.
Ryu is perfect through seven innings this evening against the Reds at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. The southpaw has been on cruise control, striking out seven batters while throwing 58 out of 82 pitches for strikes.
Stay tuned to see if Ryu can complete the 24th perfect game in MLB history. By the way, no team has ever had no-hitters in back-to-back games. That could change tonight.
