Harvey on the year is 9-3 and has an ERA of 2.09 and WHIP of 0.86. Ryu is 11-3 with an ERA of 2.99 and WHIP of 1.25. Ryu is 3-0 over his past three starts with a WHIP under three. Harvey because of a lack of run support is just 1-1 with a team record of 1-2 in his past three mound appearances. The Dodgers have been hot as the team has won six straight and 21 of their past 24 games. The difference in this matchup favors the Dodgers bats and the LA bullpen. The Dodgers have dominated the Mets in recent matchups winning seven of their past eight head to head matchups. Ryu has been solid at Dodgers Stadium this season as the lefty starter is 5-1 with an ERA of 1.83 working 68 2/3rd innings. Team record behind Ryu in his ten home starts is 8-2. The Dodgers record in Ryu’s past eight starts is a perfect 8-0 because the Dodgers give the hurler run support.
