LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hyun-Jin Ryu of the Los Angeles Dodgers is pitching a no-hitter through seven innings against the Washington Nationals.

Ryu has struck out eight and thrown 98 pitches Sunday at Dodger Stadium. Washington's only baserunner came with one out in the fourth when Brian Dozier walked.

In 2014, Ryu took a no-hitter into the eighth inning against Cincinnati before Todd Frazier led off with a double.

Dodgers right fielder Cody Bellinger backed Ryu with an outstanding defensive play that preserved the no-hit bid in the sixth. Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg appeared to hit a line-drive single, but Bellinger grabbed the ball on one hop and fired to first base in time to get Strasburg.

Washington challenged the call, but it stood after a replay review.

Anthony Rendon flied out to the left field warning track, just in front of the short wall, to end the top of the seventh. The Dodgers lead 2-0.

Ryu threw a four-hit shutout on 93 pitches Tuesday against Atlanta.
