Hyun-Jin Ryu game score of 77 was fifth best in his LAD history

Baseball fans forget that when Hyun-Jin Ryu is healthy he is one of the top left handers in the National league, and last night he reminded us of that by twirling one of the best games of his career. Using game score as the criteria, his game score of 77 was the fifth best in his career tying it with a game he threw almost five years ago.

This was only the second time since 2014 that Ryu was able to crack a game score above 76, the last coming in August of 2017.

I went to the game last night with a Met fan, who is also a baseball fan. He kept telling me all night that the Diamondback rotation was the best in the NL West. It is a good rotation, no doubt, but they don’t have Clayton Kershaw and last night Ryu show how deep the Dodger rotation is.

Right now the Dodgers sit on top of fWAR for National League starters, but don’t get complacent. That Diamondback rotation is right behind them.
