For the first time in Los Angeles Dodgers history, they’ll finish a season with at least 105 wins. They picked up their record-setting win on Saturday, as they defeated the Giants, 2-0. If they win on Sunday, it will set the record for most wins in a season in franchise history.
Hyun-Jin Ryu had one final chance to add to his Cy Young resume, and he did not disappoint. He threw seven scoreless innings, striking out seven and issuing no walks. His ERA on the season will finish at 2.32, the best in all of baseball.
Kenta Maeda threw a scoreless eighth in relief, and Kenley Jansen struck out the side in the ninth to record his 33rd save of the season.
Ryu helped his own cause, as he brought in the first run of the game with an RBI single in the fifth inning.
An inning later, Max Muncy doubled the score as he hit a solo homer for his 35th of the season. Unfortunately, this one didn’t quite land in the ocean. He joins Joc Pederson and Cody Bellinger in the 35-homer club. It’s the first time in franchise history they’ve had three players finish a season with at least 35.
