Post-Game 101 Thread: Rested Ryu Bumps Bucs


Coming off a week of rest, Hyun-Jin Ryu went 7.0 IP yielding only 5 H and 2 ER, striking out 5 and walking 1, to earn the win. The Dodgers won even with Yasiel Puig and Hanley Ramirez sidelined, who were spending their time videobombing Dodgers reporter Alanna Rizzo. In their absence, the top of the lineup stepped up:

  • Dee Gordon, 2-for-5 with a run and his 45th stolen base;
  • Justin Turner, 2-for-5 with two runs, a double, and 2 RBI;
  • Adrian Gonzalez, 3-for-3 with a double and a RBI;
  • Matt Kemp, 1-for-4 with a double and a RBI.

Juan Uribe also went 2-for-5 from the seven-hole. Andre Ethier went 0-for-5 but had a groundout RBI in the third.

Giants won so we remain in a tie for first with 61 games left. And I didn't watch any of this game, so unfortunately that's all I got!

@Saxy - Dee made some really great plays in the field as well. I remember a great sliding play and jumpup to get Harrison and also taking a toss from Turner barehanded as he crossed second to end the inning. He also nearly nailed a liner from McCutcheon with a diving catch but it snowconed out of his glove. He and McCutcheon had a funny stare down after that

and HJ was in full command throughout, except for three straight batters in the 4th. Walker drew a walk and that rattled him for some reason. The next two batters hit hard singles and he looked like a different pitcher. He got out of the inning and was back to good HJ

thanks for the recap, FB! Will go watch the condensed game now (along with my condensed milk)
