Ryu Hyun-jin is hoping to rack up his third victory in Major League Baseball on Thursday when the Los Angeles Dodgers face the New York Mets at Citi Field in New York.
In his fourth start of the season against the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday, in which he gave up eight hits, including two homeruns and five runs in six innings, Ryu got his first no-decision, putting an end to his three-game streak of strong starts.
To make matters harder for Ryu, the Mets have a strong line-up of hitters. John Buck has seven homeruns and 22 RBIs, Lucas Duda has five homeruns and 15 walks, Daniel Murphy has a batting average of 0.348, and David Wright has a batting average of 0.311.
Meanwhile, many fans are eager to see if Psy will attend the game to support Ryu. Psy is due to fly to New York to promote his latest single "Gentleman" on Thursday and has made remarks suggesting that he may show up for the game at the last minute.
Ryu has performed the famous horse-riding dance from Psy's viral hit "Gangnam Style" with his Dodgers teammates, and he recently tweeted that he showed them the music video for "Gentleman" and they loved it.
Psy replied that he would do something special for Ryu when he next takes the plate if his schedule permits it.
