Dodgers' Ryu Hyun-jin collects 4th win of season vs. Mets


Ryu got all the support he needed thanks to a three-run first inning by the Dodgers that began with a beneficial hiccup.

And then that big blue machine came storming back.

Joe Sheehan adds that the Dodgers are 68-19 when rookie Cody Bellinger starts.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (4-6), Tony Cingrani and Kenley Jansen combined on a one-hitter and the Dodgers' major league-high 12th shutout.

"Got 'em", Turner said with a smile through his bushy red beard.

"My body feels good and it is similar to what I was before having surgery", Ryu was quoted as saying on Yonhap. The team has won 23 of its last 26, and that is after it already logged a 10-game winning streak this season.

Steven Matz's rough season continued and the Mets scratched out just two baserunners, a third-inning single and ninth-inning walk as they fell to the MLB-best Dodgers, 8-0.

That team - led by Don Drysdale, Sandy Koufax and NL MVP Maury Wills - didn't even win the pennant after dropping a best-of-three playoff to rival San Francisco.

"From the first pitch to his 90th or whatever [actually 96] he was very aggressive. Get with Dan and see where I'm going wrong with runners on working out of the stretch".

We do know this, the Dodgers are dominant and the Mets are not.

Branden Albert changes his mind about playing for Jaguars
Albert worked with the first-team offense on the first day of camp but Robinson took reps there in the next two practices. Albert hasn't played a full season since 2011 when he was with Kansas City, who selected him 15th overall in 2008.

Charlie Blackmon doubled three times, the third driving in a run in the eighth to give Colorado a 2-1 lead before Rupp won it for the Phillies.

In the meantime, isn't it going to be, you know, boring for them? "I think we got a little complacent".

"I'm sure there will be a time before the end of the season when we might lose a couple games". One out later, Turner singled and Bellinger almost went down to one knee to lift his 31st homer over the right-center fence, tying it at 3. "At this point, I think this is just who we are".

Bellinger also has a flair for late-game dramatics, with 16 of his 31 home runs coming in the sixth or later, tied with Justin Smoak for most in the majors. And that kid (Cody Bellinger) is hitting all those home runs.

"It awesome how things happened - how it just seemed everything worked out for us", said Herzog. "Everybody personally wants to have success", said Turner - who could be the Dodgers' first batting champ since Tommy Davis in 1962 and 1963.

Turner also doubled in the game and stole two bases, joining Chris Taylor as the only other Dodger on the team to have two stolen bases and a home run in the same game.

"Obviously, I like history", Roberts said.

So how do we take this information and turn it into a profitable betting strategy as it pertains to the Los Angeles Dodgers? He now has six home runs against the Mets in just 79 at bats. And for next season and in their remaining 54 games, Steven Matz needs to get better and the Mets will look to what has to get get better with their starter and entire roster. "It's tough to hold them down".

Pitching coach Dan Warthen previously said Matz has been trying too hard during his starts, and his mechanics have not been in line. "It's just that simple", Roberts said.

Mets: RF-1B Jay Bruce was rested against the lefty.
