Ryu: 7IP, 0R, 3H
Returning to Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles was the perfect tonic for the Dodgers, taking game three of the NLCS by a 3-0 score after dropping the first two games of the series in St. Louis.

LA starter, Hyun-Jin Ryu, out-pitched Cardinal ace, Adam Wainwright, giving St. Louis but three hits over 7 innings, walking one and striking out four.

Ryu, the 26-year-old rookie hurler from Incheon, South Korea, recorded his first-post-season victory, throwing 69 of 108 pitches for strikes before being lifted for reliever Brian Wilson, to start the eighth. Wilson allowed one hit and fanned two. Closer Kenley Jansen picked up the save with a perfect ninth inning.

Hanley Ramirez and Yasiel Puig each had two hits and an RBI to pace the Dodger offense. Pitching has been spectacular during the series. Thus far, the two teams have combined to score just nine runs.

Ryu was 14-8 with a 3.00 ERA during the regular season.

Game four of the series is 8:07 pm EDT in LA on Tuesday.
