LOS ANGELES, Calif. (AP) – Hyun-Jin Ryu took a perfect game into the eighth inning and the Los Angeles Dodgers held on to beat the Reds 4-3 Monday.

The Reds hit only three balls out of the infield before Todd Frazier’s leadoff double down the left-field line on an 0-1 pitch in the eighth. That followed a three-run seventh by the Dodgers in which Ryu ran the bases and scored.

The left-hander from South Korea came close to making the Dodgers the first team in major league history with consecutive no-hitters. Beckett won 6-0 in Philadelphia on Sunday.

Los Angeles pitchers tossed a club-record 17 straight hitless innings dating to Saturday, when Paul Maholm got it started against the Phillies.

The Cardinals’ Adam Wainwright became the National League’s first eight-game winner by dominating Cincinnati and St. Louis pulled away to a 4-0 victory over the Reds on Sunday night that completed another series win by the Cards, who have won 10 of the last 11 series between the two NL Central rivals.
