LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Hyun-Jin Ryu had a career-best 12 strikeouts in six innings and Hanley Ramirez homered in his first start of the season, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 6-1 win over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night. Carlos Gonzalez gave the Rockies a 1-0 lead in the first inning with a home run -- but it didn't last long. Ryu (3-1) was in control throughout most of his outing. After giving up the home run to Gonzalez, he retired 14 of the next 15 batters he faced. His only blemish during that stretch was a one-out walk to Gonzalez in the fourth inning. Ryu put an end to the threat and his night by striking out Jordan Pacheco. Six of Ryu's 12 strikeouts were looking.

Ramirez, who had been sidelined after undergoing thumb surgery in the offseason, highlighted his return with a solo home run in the third inning. The Dodgers countered wi...
