Ryu was lifted for pinch hitter Chase Utley in the bottom of the fifth inning, exiting with a 3-2 lead.
Ryu’s return could not have come at a better time for the Dodgers, who are currently short on starting pitchers. The Dodgers, who recently put both ace Clayton Kershaw and right-hander Brandon McCarthy on the disabled list, will look to Ryu and recent call-up Edward Paredes to stabilize their injury-ravaged rotation, which was already missing left-hander Scott Kazmir.
