This season against the Nationals: 2 starts, 14 2/3 IP, 1 earned run, 9 hits, 13 K’s

Hyun-Jin Ryu delivered two quality starts against the Washington Nationals this season including a near no hitter at Dodger Stadium.  He did not allow a hit until the eighth inning and looked every bit like the NL Cy Young contender he is in both starts against Washington.  The Nationals have a .202/.226/.271 against Ryu and Anthony Rendon is the only player who has homered against him.

Rendon has slugged .727 against Ryu and one of the newest Nationals, Asdrubal Cabrera is 2-7 against Hyun-Jin with two doubles.  Talented young slugger Juan Soto is just 1-5 against HYun-Jin Ryu with three strikeouts.  Trea Turner has had similar struggles against Ryu going 2-13 and is one of the players who have faced him the most.  Overall, Ryu has pitched well against Washington’s projected lineup.
