Dodgers RyuBeing in a 0-2 hole to the Cardinals in the NLCS, the Dodgers will counter with rookie left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu, a 26-year-old sinkerballer.

Ryu made an interesting point about his Game 3 goal: he’s more concerned about quality than quantity.

“Truthfully, if I’m out there for five innings, I’d be more than happy,” he said. “I believe that in the postseason pitching long into games is not as important as making quality pitches from the very beginning. I’m not going to focus too much on the length of my outing.”

If the Dodger rookie doesn’t deliver Monday night, this series very likely will be all but over.
