LOS ANGELES (AP) - Hyun-Jin Ryu took a perfect game into the eighth inning - one day after teammate Josh Beckett threw a no-hitter - and the Los Angeles Dodgers held on to beat the Cincinnati Reds 4-3 Monday.
The Reds hit only three balls out of the infield before Todd Frazier's leadoff double down the left-field line on an 0-1 pitch in the eighth. That followed a three-run seventh by the Dodgers in which Ryu ran the bases and scored.
The left-hander from South Korea came close to making the Dodgers the first team in major league history with consecutive no-hitters. Beckett won 6-0 in Philadelphia on Sunday.
Los Angeles pitchers tossed a club-record 17 straight hitless innings dating to Saturday, when Paul Maholm got it started against the Phillies.
