Jose Fernandez will be going for his third win in a row when the Miami Marlins face Hyun-Jin Ryu and the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday afternoon.
Early Cy Young favorite Jose Fernandez continued his winning ways last Tuesday when he picked up his fourth win of the season by beating the Atlanta Braves. Fernandez was able to pitch eight shutout innings in that game and gave up just two hits while striking out eight and walking two. His ERA dipped to 1.59 on the season and he is striking out 12.5 batters per nine innings.
Juan Uribe is just one of a very few hitters in the league who does well against Fernandez, getting a hit in all four of their matchups. Adrian Gonzalez has just one hit in six plate appearances against Fernandez, but that one hit was a home run.
Hyun-Jin Ryu suffered his second loss of the season last Sunday when he gave up five earned runs over five innings pitched to the Colorado Rockies. He gave up nine hits in that outing and struck out just three, though he didn't surrender a walk in the game. He still has a solid 3.00 ERA on the year and has struck out 31 hitters in 39 innings of work.
No one on the Marlins has more than six plate appearances against Ryu, but second baseman Donovan Solano is 2-for-2 in his matchups with him.
