The Los Angeles Dodgers are looking to climb back in the NL West race and they helped their cause on Tuesday by beating the Mets. Adrian Gonzalez had three hits including a home run, Yasiel Puig had three hits, and Matt Kemp, Carl Crawford, and Juan Uribe each had two hits as the Dodgers scored nine runs on 15 hits. Starting pitcher Josh Beckett allowed eight hits and four runs while striking out six over 5.0 innings to get the win and go to 2-1 for the season. For Wednesday’s game the Dodgers start Hyun-Jin Ryu who makes his return from the DL. For The season Ryu has allowed 37 hits and 13 earned runs while striking out 31 over 39 innings for a 3-2 record and a 3.00 ERA.
New York is 4-10 against a team with a winning record, 2-6 in game two of a series, and 1-5 in their last six home games. Los Angeles is 5-2 in game two of a series, 2-5 in their last seven road games, and 4-1 in Ryu’s last five road starts. Los Angeles has won seven of their last eight games in New York.
deGrom pitched extremely well in his last start despite losing and I look for him to get the best of this one as even when healthy Ryu is much better at home than on the road.
