The Dodgers record improves to 65-35

MLB: Miami Marlins at Los Angeles Dodgers Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Hyun-Jin Ryu and the Dodgers pitching staff carried the team to a Friday night win over the Marlins.

Despite not showing his best stuff, Ryu held the Marlins to just one run and four over seven innings pitched. He struck out eight batters as well. Friday night became Ryu’s 11th win of the season and lowered his 1.78 ERA down to 1.76. Not a huge change, but still impressive.

The only run he allowed came in the fourth inning from a base hit and a double to put the Dodgers down 1-0. Luckily, the offense found just enough run support to give him the win.

Corey Seager stepped up to the plate with the bases loaded in the sixth inning and grounded into a force out, leading Alex Verdugo at third base to reach home plate. Kiké Hernández came up after and reached on a fielding error, which brought in the second and final run of the night.

After Kenta Maeda’s Wednesday start was cut short with a ridiculously long rain delay, Roberts got him in action on Friday. He tossed a 1-2-3 inning, striking out two of three.

Kenley Jansen redeemed himself after blowing a save on Tuesday against the Phillies. He came in and got the job done, striking out the side for a perfect ninth inning.
