Dodgers' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Dealt first loss

Ryu (3-1) took the loss Tuesday, allowing three runs on four hits and a walk while striking out four over four innings against the Cardinals.

Ryu was done in by a poor third inning in which he allowed a pair of singles and a home run. The 31-year-old has had a relatively tight pitch count in every outing this season, but aside from the start in which he exited with an injury, the 72 pitches (46 strikes) were the fewest he's thrown all year. Even with Tuesday's outing, he's still sporting a 2.27 ERA and a career-best 10.4 K/9 in eight starts. Next up is an interleague matchup in Texas.
