Dodgers left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu entered tonight’s outing against the Cardinals as a question mark after he lasted just three innings in his start in Game 3 against the Braves during the NLDS. However, he has bounced back in impressive fashion while putting the Dodgers in position for their first win of the NLCS.
Ryu has handed things over to the bullpen after tossing seven scoreless innings in Game 3. The southpaw allowed just three hits and one walk on the night while striking out four. He didn’t allow his first hit until a leadoff single by David Freese in the fifth inning, which ended up being the best scoring chance of the night for the Cardinals. However, a brain cramp by pinch-runner Daniel Descalso helped him escape the inning without any damage.
The Dodgers still lead it 2-0 as we move to the top of the eighth inning at Dodger Stadium. Brian Wilson has taken over for Ryu.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – The Tampa Bay Rays are relocating their spring base for 2023 due to extensive damage to team training facilities caused by Hurricane Ian.
The Rays have trained since 2009 in Port Charlotte, Florida, about 90 minutes south of St. Petersburg, and intend to explore several options before making a decision on where to hold spring training and play Grapefruit League games when camp opens.
The team and Charlotte County released a joint statement Thursday, saying damage to Charlotte Sports Park in Port Charlotte can’t be repaired in time to host games this winter.
“Charlotte County supports the Rays efforts to secure alternative accommodations for 2023 spring training,” the statement said.
“We are all disappointed for the residents of Charlotte County and the fans there. The community is in the thoughts and hearts of the Rays, and the team will continue to support recovery efforts,” the statement added. “The Rays and Charlotte County intend to develop a restoration plan for Charlotte Sports Park in the coming weeks.”
