Dodgers pitcher Hyu-Jin Ryu carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning against the Washington Nationals. The bid appeared to be over when Stephen Strasburg smacked a single into right field. But it wasn’t a single at all, as Cody Bellinger hurled the ball to first base in time to get the opposing pitcher.
That’s your classic 9-3 putout.
Ryu would have to get nine more outs to complete the feat. If he does, he’ll owe his rightfielder a great deal.
Baseball: one never knows what they’ll see.
