Dodgers’ Ryu wins his third consecutive start

Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed just two hits and three walks over seven scoreless innings while striking out eight batters Saturday against the Nationals.

Ryu has posted three consecutive quality starts, posting a 3-0 record with a 0.95 ERA, six hits, four walks and 25 strikeouts over 19 innings during the impressive span. The southpaw will look to continue his winning ways in his next scheduled start in a favorable matchup against Derek Holland and the Giants at AT&T Park on Friday.

Giants’ Holland ho-hum vs. Angels in last start

Derek Holland allowed four earned runs, five hits and a walk with six strikeouts over six innings in a loss on the road against the Angels on Saturday. Holland threw 66 of his 100 pitches for strikes, but he slipped to 0-3 while his ERA rose to 4.98. The Giants are 0-4 in his four outings this season and the San Francisco offense has posted a total of eight runs of support for him. He'll try to get back into the win column in Friday's scheduled start against Hyun-Jin Ryu and the Dodgers.
