Gordon’s 4 Hits Lead Dodgers Over Rockies, 6-1
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com/AP) — Dee Gordon had four hits, including a triple that was misplayed into four bases by left fielder Charlie Blackmon, and Hyun-Jin Ryu pitched six strong innings to help the Los Angeles Dodgers beat Colorado 6-1 on Monday night and snap the Rockies’ season-best five-game winning streak.
Gordon reached base five times on the night.
Ryu (8-3) allowed a run and three hits in six innings and struck out six in his 13th start. In his first 13 starts last season — his first in the major leagues — the left-hander was 8-5 with a 2.85 ERA. This was the ninth time this year that Ryu has allowed fewer than three earned runs, and he is 7-0 in those games.
Matt Kemp drove in two runs for Los Angeles, while Hanley Ramirez, A.J. Ellis and Yasiel Puig had RBI singles.
Tyler Matzek (1-1) allowed three runs and 10 hits through five innings in his second big league start and did not strike out a batter.
