Yesterday was another victory for the Dodgers as they won against the Padres in an 8-2 victory. However, there was another victory for the Dodgers because of a decision by the MLB in regards to Ryu Hyun-jin. Thus, the MLB Changes Ryu Hyun-jin’s ERA to 1.53 from 1.66 due to an objection the Dodgers made last month.
The revision of Ryu’s ERA came after the Dodgers made an objection about the July 15 game against Boston. The Dodgers won the game 7-4; however, the MLB had given Ryu two earned runs during the game. In the end, the Dodgers got their wish making baseball betting fans when the MLB chose to revise his ERA.
Helping Ryu Hyun-jin Strengthen his Position for the Cy Young Award
Thanks to the MLB revising Ryu Hyun-jin’s ERA to 1.53, he now has a better a lead for the Cy Young Award. The revision came about because during the game in Boston, Ryu should have gotten a scoreless inning.
This is because he had loaded based after a ground-ball arrives in a desperate predicament of the primary inning. Two runs at that point scored on a two-out ground ball by Andrew Benintendi. However, PPH Service says that due to a change by the MLB, he did not receive his scoreless game.
This is because the MLB chose to change Xander Bogaerts’ one-out infield single to a handling mistake. In view of the new statistics, Ryu thus threw seven innings without ant runs. Therefore, his ERA for the 2019 season is now an MLB best with 1.53 after 21 games.
At the moment, his closest competitor for the Cy Young Award is Atlanta’s Mike Soroka with an ERA of 2.37. According to sports betting odds, next in the ranking is pitcher Max Sherzer of the Washington Nationals with 2.41 ERA.
Now that the 2019 MLB season is in the second half of the season, Ryu has a nice lead for the top pitching honor.
