Cincinnati's first baseman Todd Frazier lined a hit over third base for a double to give the Reds their first baserunner. It was the first hit that Dodgers pitchers had allowed in 17 innings after Josh Beckett didn't give up a hit against the Phillies on Sunday.
Ryu proceeded to give up three hits in the eighth inning and lost the shutout on a sacrifice fly from Chris Heisey. The left-hander ended up surrendering three earned runs after Brian Wilson allowed two inherited runners to score in the eighth. In all, Ryu gave up three hits and struck out seven without walking a batter over 7⅓ innings.
No MLB team has ever thrown no-hitters in consecutive games, although it has happened once on consecutive days. On May 5, 1917, Ernie Koob of the St. Louis Browns no-hit the Chicago White Sox, and teammate Bob Groom repeated the feat in the second game of a doubleheader the following day.
On Sept. 17, 1968, Gaylord Perry of the Giants no-hit the Cardinals one day before St. Louis' Ray Washburn held the Giants hitless. Less than a year later, on April 30 and May 1, Jim Maloney of the Reds and Don Wilson of the Astros repeated the same feat, throwing no-hitters on consecutive days for two opposing teams.
Ryu had a 3.00 ERA coming into Monday and had struck out 40 batters and walked 12 in 45 innings pitched. The left-hander excelled as a rookie for Los Angeles after signing a six-year, $36 million deal with the Dodgers in the winter of 2012.
