LOS ANGELES (AP) - Rookie Hyun-Jin Ryu outdueled Matt Harvey, and Nick Punto and A.J. Ellis drove in two runs apiece, helping the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the New York Mets 4-2 on Tuesday night for their first 7-game winning streak in more than three years.
The Dodgers improved to 39-8 since June 22, becoming the first NL team with such a run since the New York Giants from Aug. 12-Oct. 3, 1951. Their winning streak is the franchise's longest since taking nine straight from May 9-18, 2010.
Ryu (12-3) allowed one run and five hits in six innings, struck out three and walked one.
The left-hander is unbeaten in seven starts since July 5, going 6-0 during his career-high winning streak. Ryu improved to 6-1 at Dodger Stadium, where he has won his last six decisions.
Kenley Jansen pitched the ninth to earn his 19th save in 22 chances.
