LA Dodgers’ Ryu Hyun-jin grabs his 12th win of the season against Arizona Diamondbacks


In Major League Baseball, the LA Dodgers’
Ryu Hyun-jin came off the injured list on Sunday to put in an impeccable performance
to help the Dodgers beat the Diamondbacks. Won Jung-hwan reports. Back from a sore neck,… the South Korean
left-handed pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin picked up right where he left off. Ryu strengthened his leading position in the
race for his first ‘Cy Young’ Award with seven scoreless innings at Dodger Stadium as the
LA Dodgers beat the Arizona Diamondbacks by 9 runs to 3 on Sunday. Ryu held the Diamondbacks by throwing just
over 90 pitches,… and getting four strike outs. He was on the winning side for the 12th time
this season,… and lowered his ‘Earned Run Average’ from 1-point-53 to 1-point-45. Ryu’s ERA is beyond impressive. In fact, it is nearly a full run better than
the next-best pitcher in terms of ERA,… Atlanta Braves’ Mike Soroka, who ranks second
with 2-point-32. Nobody else in Major League Baseball has an
ERA below 2 this year besides this Korean Monster,… and he is currently on track for
the 5th lowest Earned Run Average in MLB history. Ryu is now in the form of his career, easily
outpacing his previous best of 1-point-74 ERA and 11 wins. And many experts say Ryu’s chances of becoming
the first Asian athlete to win the Cy Young Award are looking very strong. Won Jung-hwan, Arirang News.
