The Los Angeles Dodgers left hand pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu made a rehab start with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes Friday night.
Ryu looked like he was off to a good start, but after getting the first two hitters of the game, Andrew Susac reached on a throwing error, extending the inning. Ryu’s next pitch was crushed to center field, as Chris Shaw smashed his eighth homer of the year, putting the Giants in front, 2-0.
After a 1-2-3 second, Ryu allowed a solo-shot to Ronnie Jebavy one out into the third inning, making it a 3-0 lead for San Jose. Steven Duggar followed with a single, but Ryu coaxed a ground ball out of Susac, as the Quakes turned two to end the inning and wrap up Ryu’s night after 44 pitches.
Ryu (0-1) allowed a total of three runs, one earned on three hits over three innings, striking out one batter. Through a translator, Ryu said that his surgically repaired shoulder felt good and suggested that his next start would not be for Rancho Cucamonga.
