Hyun-Jin Ryu continued his dominant pitching with seven scoreless innings as the Los Angeles Dodgers won their seventh consecutive game, a 9-0 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday in Phoenix.
Ryu (9-1) allowed three hits, walked none and struck out two. He retired 12 in a row at one point, won his sixth consecutive start and lowered his ERA from 1.48 to 1.35. He has not allowed a run in five of his past six outings.
Yimi Garcia and Scott Alexander each pitched a scoreless inning of relief to complete the Dodgers' eighth shutout of the season and third in the past week. Los Angeles has won 11 of its past 12 games.
Cody Bellinger hit a two-run triple off the top of the wall in center field in the first inning to stake Ryu to an early lead and extend his hitting streak to 11 games.
Corey Seager doubled twice and drove in two runs for Los Angeles, which scored six runs in the final three innings. Enrique Hernandez had two hits, including an opposite-field homer to lead off the seventh for a 4-0 lead.
Arizona starter Taylor Clarke (1-2) allowed three runs (two earned) and four hits in five innings. The rookie struck out four and walked two.
Ryu, the National League Pitcher of the Month for May, twice worked around trouble due to shoddy defense, including two errors by Seager at shortstop.
After a pair of two-out errors by the Dodgers in the first inning, Ryu got Christian Walker to tap back to him on a checked swing.
In the seventh, the Diamondbacks had runners on first and third on a single and an error, but Ryu induced Nick Ahmed to hit into an inning-ending double play.
Los Angeles made it 3-0 in the third, thanks to two Diamondbacks errors. First, second baseman Ildemaro Vargas booted a potential inning-ending double play. Then, with two outs and runners on the corners, Clarke's wild pickoff throw to first allowed Joc Pederson to score from third.
Diamondbacks right fielder Adam Jones left the game in the top of the fourth due to right hamstring tightness. Team officials said he is day-to-day.
