Tuesday was a historic night all around.
First, Hyun-Jin Ryu had arguably the greatest start of his career. Using baseball reference, here’s what I was able to find.
Hyun-Jin Ryu throws the complete game shutout. He only needed 93 pitches, and didn’t walk a batter.— Blake Harris (@BlakeHarrisTBLA) May 8, 2019
He’s the 12th Dodgers pitcher to ever do that, and the first since Hiroki Kuroda in 2008
Switching things over to Justin Turner now. He hit THREE (3!!) homers!
He’s the second third baseman in Dodgers history to hit three home runs in a game. The other was Juan Uribe in 2013.
Around the league...
Tuesday was the three-year anniversary of the greatest moment in sports history.
