Leeft-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu is finishing up an incredible regular season for the Dodgers, one that should have him positioned for some serious consideration come awards season.
In Sunday's game vs. the Colorado Rockies in his final start at home before the Dodgers look ahead to the postseason, Ryu did the unthinkable and hit a home run.
At the plate, he has hit eight doubles and one triple, as called by legendary announcer Vin Scully back in Ryu's first season in Los Angeles. But he never hit a home run until yesterday.
Ryu went seven innings, struck out eight (for a career-high 156) without a walk, raised his record to 13-5 and boosted his chances for the NL Cy Young Award.
