Hyun-Jin Ryu Extends Scoreless Streak To 31 Innings 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon May 20, 2019 11:48 am

Hyun-Jin Ryu shutout the Cincinnati Reds over seven innings on Sunday, extending his Major League-leading scoreless innings streak to 31 innings.

\"He\'s just locked in right now with all of his pitches,\" Dave Roberts said of his starting pitcher. \"It\'s fun to watch. He\'s healthy. The conditions, the situations don\'t matter.\"

Ryu had baserunners in each of his first five innings, but none of them got past second base and he retired his last eight batters.

His ERA for the season is now 1.52.

\"I wasn\'t crisp, especially early in the game,\" Ryu said through a translator. \"There was a lot of traffic out there. I was able to execute the right pitches at the right time.\"
