2019 Topps Now - #881 - Babe Ryu and the Dodgers 100th Win!

The Dodgers Cy Young candidate, Hyun-Jin Ryu, came out on Sunday and recorded not only his 13th win of the season (one short of a career high), but also hit his very first career home run. It was off of Rockies pitcher Antonio Senzatela in the fifth inning, and it tied the game up at one run apiece. Per Cary Osborne at Dodger Insider:
Ryu said he tried to keep a poker face on his trip around the bases and into the dugout. His teammates did the opposite. 
“We were definitely more excited than him,” Bellinger said. “That was his first career home run, so we’re obviously really excited for him, which is crazy (that he hasn’t hit one before) because he has stupid power at batting practice.”
Soon after Ryu moonshot the Dodger rallied to score four more runs during the inning and eventually won the contest to win their 100th of the year. In honor of both Ryu's home run and the Dodger win Topps has issued a new 2019 Topps Now card for fans to collection. Go here to check it out and order.
