Insight: This time he outdueled Giants ace Madison Bumgarner (4 1/3 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 6 K's, 3 BB) for his third win of the season. Ryu isn't striking that many hitters out (25 K's in five starts) but he isn't walking many either (nine free passes in 28 IP).

Insight: The MLB season is only three games old and we've already seen Ryu pitch twice, allowing just five hits over 12 shutout innings. Unfortunately, setup man Brian Wilson blew the lead, costing Ryu what would have been his second win of the season. Ryu's next start is scheduled for Friday against the Giants.
