Kenta and Ryu add to their game score leaderboards

Kenta Maeda put up a game score of 78 last night and if you happen to think that was one of his best games ever, you’d be correct. It was the second best game of his career using game score as the criteria.

Ryu pitched a gem last Sunday matching Bumgarner pitch for pitch. Ryu had a game score of 73, which was his 7th best game score but the first time he had cracked a game score of 70 since August 31st, 2014. I don’t think many were betting on Ryu to

  1. Be in the rotation in late July
  2. Have over  80 successful innings under his belt
  3. Clock in a game score over 70

What if the best is yet to come for Ryu?

    27 months since shoulder surgery
    10 months since elbow surgery.
    It does look like Ryu is getting stronger.
    It would just be a magnificent accomplishment if Ryu could regain and maintain his form previous to the injuries.
    What Ryu has accomplished thus far in his comeback is already outstanding.
