Ryu Hyun-jin of the Los Angeles Dodgers saw his streak of 32 consecutive scoreless innings come to an end in a game against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday.
Ryu gave up two runs in the bottom of the second inning in the game at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, which was delayed by two hours due to a storm forecast. Over six innings, Ryu gave up a season-high 10 hits while striking out three batters and walking none.
But he managed to get out of numerous jams to secure a 7-2 victory and his seventh win of the season, putting him at the top of the National League along with Max Fried of the Atlanta Braves. Ryu's ERA rose slightly from 1.52 to 1.65, but he is still the only starting pitcher with an ERA under 2.
Ryu was great as a batter as well. In the top of the fourth inning with two out and a runner on first base, Ryu doubled on a fly ball off the right-center field wall, sending Chris Taylor home to give the Dodgers a 3-2 lead. It was Ryu's first RBI of the season. Ryu also made a sacrifice bunt in the sixth inning.
