Roberts on how Ryu looked tonight compared to the majority of the season:
”Execution was considerably better than the last few starts…he and Russ were in a good spot tonight, and more of what we expected from him.”
Dave on how much the pitcher-catcher relationship mattered tonight:
”Both guys prepare really well, and Hyun-Jin does a great job of essentially calling his own game. Both guys are good receivers.”
The Dodgers and Mets will matchup in primetime tomorrow, for the rubber match, as Walker Buehler takes the mound for Los Angeles.
