Ryu Hyun-jin Throws Best Game of MLB Career

Los Angeles Dodgers make history on Saturday against Mets

The longtime Mets voice took to the airways before the Sunday night Dodgers-Mets prime-time matchup on ESPN to complain about the network holding up the game past its scheduled 8:05 p.m. ET start time.

Justin Turner's caught stealing turned into a two-out stolen base when a video review determined he reached around Amed Rosario to evade the rookie shortstop's tag, sparking a three-run first inning that started the record-setting Los Angeles Dodgers to an 8-0 rout of the Mets on Sunday night and their first season sweep of NY. Closer Kenley Jansen said he's never had this much fun playing baseball, and he's one guy who has experienced a similar ride: The 2013 Dodgers went 42-8 from June 22 through August 17.

Cardinals 13, Reds 4: Jose Martinez hit his first career grand slam as St. Louis cruised to a victory over Cincinnati.

With 10 homers in NY, the Dodgers set a record for the most home runs in a three-game series at Citi Field.

Ryu got off to a great start by striking out all three batters in the first and the first batter in the second. The first team to surpass the 200 plateau this year. The early hit spared manager Dave Roberts the possible task of pulling Ryu, who hasn't pitched more than seven innings in an outing this year, with a no-hitter or flawless game intact. He's now given up at least five runs in four of his last six starts. Kenta Maeda will get the nod and is 10-4 with a 3.79 ERA and 90 strikeouts this season.

The Dodgers could go 21-30 the rest of the way and still win 100 games for the first time since 1974.

New York Yankees edged out Cleveland Indians 2-1 courtesy of sensational defensive plays in the ninth inning by Brett Gardner and Ronald Torreyes, to snap a four-game losing streak.

She said two men were inside the auto and at least one of them shot at her on the interstate near Dead Man's Curve, police said. She told police that two men were in the trailing vehicle, and someone fired shots toward her.

They've done it just about any way you can think of as well.

Ryu was cold at the plate as he struck out three times, but his Dodgers teammates were sharp. Since then, the Dodgers have marched to the top of the division and lead by 14 games.

In the third, the Dodgers made the score 5-0 after Turner slammed a two-run shot off Mets starter Matz. Ex-Met Justin Turner hit a two run bomb to right field to give L.A. a five run cushion.

To say the Los Angeles Dodgers are on a roll would be a severe understatement.

"Their pitching has been awfully steady", said Herzog.

"As a pitcher coming back from the injury, I'm pretty sure (Roberts) would have pulled me out (due to) the pitch count", Ryu said through an interpreter. "It was a game that taught me the importance of your command". After he burst on to the scene and pitched all the way to the World Series in 2015, he made 22 starts last season. He has been struggling to get his fastball velocity up to par. This is a different team from that one, completely turned over except for Jansen, Clayton Kershaw, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Adrian Gonzalez (who hasn't played since June 11).

"I feel no differently", Ryu said through his interpreter Sunday. "I know I have to work on my velocity going down as I threw more innings, but other than that, I'm alright".
