Hyun-Jin Ryu stifles another opponent, as Dodgers take 3 of 4 from Mets

first_img Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start The Dodgers captured three of four games against the Mets. Although they never trailed Thursday, a low hum of drama accompanied the series finale. Mets pitcher Jason Vargas (1-3) nearly out-finessed Ryu for seven innings.The Apple Valley native allowed back-to-back hits to begin the game. Chris Taylor scorched a line drive that went under the glove of J.D. Davis in left field and dribbled far enough for Taylor to reach third base, a triple. The next hitter, Max Muncy, smacked an RBI double to right-center field. After four pitches the Dodgers led 1-0.Vargas didn’t permit another runner to pass second base. He allowed four more hits, all singles, and walked three. Using a fastball that topped out at 87 mph, a changeup, and a curveball that regularly dipped below 70, Vargas effectively kept the Dodgers off-balance on a day off for regulars Justin Turner, Joc Pederson and Corey Seager. He struck out six.The Dodgers worked Vargas for 98 pitches over seven innings before left-hander Hector Santiago took over in the eighth. David Freese greeted him with a one-out double into the right-field corner. Kiké Hernandez drove in Freese with a two-out single. The Dodgers led 2-0.That was enough run support for Ryu, who said his changeup was the most effective it’s been all season. He recorded three strikeouts on cut fastballs, three on changeups and one on a four-seam fastball.“My changeup worked the best today,” Ryu said. “I was able to throw it for a strike and I was able to make them chase when I wanted to. In general, all my pitches have been working well. Commanding those pitches gives me a lot of confidence and definitely led me to a good sequence for success.”By now, it’s beyond coincidence that Ryu is seeing unprecedented success with a repertoire that stands out a little more each year.While the average velocity has trended up in MLB since Ryu debuted in 2013, his has gradually declined. A four-seamer that once regularly touched 95 mph topped out at 93 on Thursday. Mostly, Ryu relies on guile and command. Todd Frazier became only the fifth batter to draw a walk against him in 2019. No starting pitcher is issuing walks at a slower pace than Ryu.“With his stuff, he can survive in any era,” Roberts said. “It’s always a good thing to be able to command the baseball and to use different pitches. I think now, when you’re talking about the ability to strike guys out, which he has, and the ability to put the ball on the ground – now you’re talking about shifting and defensive metrics and putting guys in the right spots, depending on the tendencies of the hitter – and you look at Hyun-Jin’s balls in play, they’re converted into outs more than any of our pitchers.“Right now probably, as an outlier with the defensive metrics, gives (Ryu) even a better opportunity for me.”Related Articles How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Ryu was allowed to throw 106 pitches, 10 short of his season high. He batted for himself in the bottom of the seventh inning. In the top of the eighth, he was allowed to pitch to Amed Rosario, a right-handed hitter with six hits in the series, with a runner on base. Rosario grounded out on a 1-and-0 sinker, and Ryu exited to a standing ovation.“To go from Hyun-Jin to Kenley was the right thing to do tonight,” Roberts said.Credited with his 16th save, Jansen closed the door on a pleasantly anticlimactic win – a rarity for the Dodgers’ bullpen of late. He grazed Pete Alonso with a pitch in the ninth inning, but came back to strike out Frazier and retire Carlos Gomez on a flyout. It was the first time since Saturday the Dodgers’ bullpen did not allow a run.For much of March, Ryu deflected questions about the potential for starting on Opening Day, even when the assignment appeared inevitable. His first question about pitching in an All-Star Game for the first time met a similar fate Thursday.“I think it’s a bit too early for that conversation,” Ryu said. “I haven’t really put a lot of thought into it.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies center_img Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco ­PreviousLOS ANGELES, CA – MAY 30: Chris Taylor #3, Alex Verdugo #27 and Cody Bellinger #35 of the Los Angeles Dodgers celebrate after the final out in a 2-0 win over the New York Mets at Dodger Stadium on May 30, 2019 in Los Angeles, California.

(AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)ExpandLOS ANGELES — If every starting pitcher in the Dodgers’ rotation can remain healthy between now and the All-Star break, with no extra days of rest, Hyun-Jin Ryu will start seven games. That includes the final contest before the break, a Sunday home game against the Padres.This schedule would create a unique situation. Any pitcher who starts the Sunday before the break can petition Major League Baseball for an exemption from appearing in the All-Star Game. It would be a shame if the National League manager were unable to use Ryu on July 9 in Cleveland. The left-hander leads the NL with eight wins and a 1.48 earned-run average.That NL manager is Dave Roberts. Thursday night against the New York Mets, the Dodgers’ skipper heeded the advice that will surely follow him all the way to Progressive Field: he let Ryu pitch. Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season “We’re not there yet,” Roberts said of the All-Star Game, “but he’s a clear frontrunner right now.”Ryu (8-1) tossed 7⅔ shutout innings, allowing only four hits and striking out seven in a 2-0 victory before an announced crowd of 47,848 at Dodger Stadium. He allowed only two Mets runners to reach second base; neither reached third. His 0.59 ERA in May is the lowest by any Dodgers pitcher in a calendar month since Clayton Kershaw’s 0.27 ERA in July 2015.Since his career-best streak of 32 consecutive scoreless innings concluded Saturday in Pittsburgh, Ryu has started a new streak. It was up to 11⅔ innings when he was relieved by closer Kenley Jansen with two outs in the eighth inning Thursday.“This month of May was incredible,” Ryu said through his interpreter. “I’ve always told everyone how I wanted to do my job as a starting pitcher, meaning I want to throw six, seven innings and put the team in a position where they can win. I’ve always said that but not necessarily executed the way that I wanted. This month of May, I definitely was able to do that. I do feel it is unbelievable.”The Dodgers (38-19) have won five of their last six games, moving a season-high 8 ½ games ahead of the second-place San Diego Padres (29-27) in the National League West. They are thus far 18-7 in May with one game remaining Friday against the NL East-leading Phillies.last_img read more

Sweeping the Beaches, Documenting the Trash

first_imgAll along the Jersey Shore Saturday, Oct. 26, volunteers could be found participating in Clean Ocean Action’s Beach Sweeps. Approximately 5,700 volunteers registered across New Jersey to help clean the beaches and catalogue what types of trash were found. The data is then compiled into an annual report used to bring awareness to the state of the beaches. At Sea Bright, approximately 250 volunteers picked up broken pieces of plastic in an array sizes from bottles, straws, cups and – a newer pollutant – e-cigarette pods. At Sandy Hook alone, over 600 volunteers combed the various beaches for trash, finding driftwood, water shoes, cups, wagon wheels, nails and potato chip bags. Photos by Patrick Oliverolast_img
