Truth is the Dodgers could not be certain what to expect when Hyun-Jin Ryu took the mound to start Game 3. Not after his disastrous previous outing in the playoffs and then there was the concern he was hiding an injury. They just knew they needed a strong start from Ryu to keep the Dodgers from looking at an 0-3 hole in the National League Championship Series. Ryu not only gave them a strong outing he gave them the outing of his life holding the Cardinals scoreless in his seven innings as the Dodgers took Game 3 with a 3-0 victory Monday at Dodger Stadium to get back in the series. Ryu no-hit the Cardinals through the first four innings and gave up only three hits on the night. He struck out four and walked one. This was a long way from the left-hander who was chased after three innings in his divisional start against the Atlanta Braves. The victory leaves the Dodgers down two games to one in the best-of-seven series. Game 4 is scheduled Tuesday here at 5 p.m. PT. The Dodgers got a lift when Hanley Ramirez (cracked rib) and Andre Ethier (ankle) gutted out injuries to return to the lineup. The Dodgers scored twice off Adam Wainwright in the second on a RBI double by Adrian Gonzalez and RBI triple by Yasiel Puig. They added one more in the ninth on a run-scoring single by Ramirez.
