Ryu Hyun-jin, who recorded his first win of the season in 3 games after returning with 5 innings, 2 hits and 2 runs (0 earned) against the Chicago Cubs on the 14th, started an away game against the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA on the 21st. was nominated as a pitcher.

Ryu Hyun-jin pitched relatively well with a 3.23 ERA in 8 games against Cincinnati. The most recent match against Cincinnati was a home game on May 21 last year. At that time, Ryu Hyun-jin had a good memory of becoming a winning pitcher with 6 hits, 3 strikeouts and no runs in 6 innings.

However, last year and this year’s Cincinnati are completely different teams. Cincinnati, who finished 4th in the Central Division of the National League with 62 wins and 100 losses (0.383 win rate) last year, is 63 wins and 59 losses (0.516 odds rate) this season and is only two games behind the Milwaukee Brewers (65 wins, 57 losses, odds rate 0.533), who are ranked first in the NL Central Division. They are running in 3rd place. While competing for the lead in the NL Central District, they are also competing fiercely against the Chicago Cubs (62-58, odds ratio of 0.517) and the Miami Marlins (63-59, odds of 0.516) in the wild card race.

The part that draws attention in this head-to-head match is the difference in speed between the starting pitchers. Hunter Green, a 24-year-old young gun who was unofficially selected as the Cincinnati starter, is one of the best fireballers in the major leagues. The average velocity of Green’s fastball is a whopping 98.6 miles per hour (about 158.7 km), which ranks second among all starting pitchers who have played 70 or more innings (first place, Bobby Miller of the Los Angeles Dodgers, 99.2 miles per hour).

Ryu Hyun-jin’s average fastball speed, which started in four games this season, is 88.7 miles per hour (about 142.7 km), which is only 3% of the total in the major leagues. There is a difference of almost 10 miles per hour from the green where they will face off. An interesting picture is drawn in which Ryu Hyun-jin of ‘Control and Respect’ and Green of ‘Speed ​​and Spirit’ collide.

From the standpoint of Toronto, Ryu Hyun-jin, who was in charge of the last game of the three-game series away from Cincinnati, needs a good pitch. Toronto, currently recording 67-55 (0.549 odds), is being chased by the Seattle Mariners (66-55, odds 0.545) by 0.5 game in the wild card competition. After taking a day off after three consecutive games away from Cincinnati, Toronto will play three consecutive games against the Baltimore Orioles (74-47, odds ratio of 0.612), which ranks first in the American League overall odds. In order to reduce the burden as much as possible and meet the Baltimore expedition, Ryu Hyun-jin is desperately needed.
