(Yonhap) Ryu Hyun-jin of the Los Angeles Dodgers suffered his second loss of the season on Sunday after a shaky start against the Colorado Rockies.

Ryu dropped to 3-2 after allowing six earned runs on nine hits in five-plus innings against the Rockies at Dodger Stadium.

Ryu was relieved by Brandon League with no out in the top sixth after Josh Rutledge’s three-run homer. The Dodgers went on to lose 6-1.

Ryu allowed leadoff hits in four of the six innings and threw 89 pitches on the tough day, 64 of them for strikes.

The left-hander saw his ERA balloon from 2.12 to 3.23.

The Dodgers scored first in the bottom first thanks to Adrian Gonzalez’s RBI single, but the Rockies promptly went ahead with two runs in the second on Brandon Barnes’ two-run single. Ryu appeared to settle down and retired seven in a row in one stretch, before giving up another run in the fifth.

Charlie Blackmon led off the fifth with a double. Barnes laid down a bunt and was safe at first on Ryu’s fielding error. Barnes was later caught trying to steal second, but Blackmon came home on the play to make it 3-1.

Ryu failed to retire a batter in the sixth. Justin Morneau started the inning with a double and Nolan Arenado followed up with a single. Then Rutledge took Ryu deep over the left-field wall to blow the game wide open.

That was the first home run Ryu gave up this year.

The Rockies entered the contest as the National League leaders with 31 home runs and 134 runs scored in 25 games. The Rockies led the majors with 255 hits, a .293 batting average and a .470 slugging percentage.

Ryu was pitching on four days’ rest. His career record on four days rest dropped to 5-6 with a 4.09 ERA. He is 8-1 with a 1.90 ERA on five days’ rest and 4-3 with a 2.56 ERA on six or more days of break in between starts.
