LOS ANGELES Hyun-Jin Ryu struck out Colorado Rockies first baseman Jordan Pacheco looking and calmly walked off the field back to the Dodgers dugout to end the top of the fourth inning on Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium. All of a sudden South Korean megastar PSY of Gangnam Style fame entered Dodger Stadium...on the Jumbotron that is, to a smattering of cheers. Those cheers turned into a boisterous standing ovation as he emerged coming up the steps near the Dodgers dugout. Gangham style was in full effect with SY dropping the dance on the True Blue Dodger faithful. Much to their delight, he even gave them an I See You, the gesture made famous by Dodgers third baseman Hanley Ramirez. A great gesture by PSY, after all, it was Ramirezs I See You Bobblehead Night. Met @psy_oppa after tonight's game ISeeYou PSY! twitter.comHanleyRamirez Hanley Ramirez (@HanleyRamirez) May 1, 2013 However, that was just the beginning. There was more PSY to come on Tuesday night at Chavez Ravine. And plenty of Ryu as well. On the night the Dodgers rookie pitched in front of his South Korean countryman for the first time as a Major Leaguer and the night they were scheduled to meet following the game, Ryu put forth his best effort of the season. Ryu struck out a career-high 12 batters in a 6-2 win over the Colorado Rockies. It was the most strikeouts for a Dodger rookie since Hideo Nomo struck out 13 in 1995. He also did it with his bat, driving in Andre Ethier on a single to right field for his first career RBI in the third inning. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly, who couldn't resist doing a Gangnam Style dance of his own while addressing the media on Tuesday night, was impressed but not surprised. He didnt think his pitcher would be affected one bit by PSYs presence. It seems like he enjoys that (attention), Mattingly said. He seems to like it which is nice really because hes just kind of jacked up. When Ryu and PSY met following the game, the Dodgers pitcher presented the megastar with an autographed jersey. In return PSY presented Ryu with a pair of autographed glasses the singer once wore in a concert. .@hyunjinryu99 presents @psy_oppa with a Dodgers jersey: vine.covbQBQmiFh6ZW Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) May 1, 2013 Ryu said the two didnt have much to say to one another but did make dinner plans. In his first season with the Dodgers, Ryu has developed quite a following since coming over to the U.S. There were eight different video cameras and a host of still photographers at the game specifically for him. On the teams last road trip to New York, there was a plethora of media there for the South Korean star as well. However, after meeting PSY, Ryu realized although hes famous, hes not that famous. It was pretty neat meeting a worldwide global star, Ryu said through translator Martin Kim. It was pretty interesting to see him and I realized today that hes still a far bigger star than I am.
