Korean Monster’ Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays) failed to accumulate wins for two consecutive games in September. In the game against the Colorado Rockies on the 2nd (Korean time), they missed out on a victory due to the arson of their trusted bullpen, and in the game against the Oakland Athletics on the 7th, they suffered a loss due to the silence of their hot batting lineup.
Ryu Hyun-jin started the 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) away game against Oakland held at the Oakland Coliseum in Oakland, California on the 7th and threw 77 balls in 5 innings, allowing 5 hits (1 home run), 1 walk, 5 strikeouts, and 2 runs. .
Since his first win of the season against the Chicago Cubs on August 14, Ryu Hyun-jin has done his job as a starting pitcher by pitching 2 earned runs or less in 5 innings in 5 consecutive games, but suffered his second loss of the season as the team lost 2-5. .
Ryu Hyun-jin, who returned to the major league stage after recovering from an elbow injury, recorded 3 wins (1 loss) in 5 games in August, but has not yet reported a victory in September.
In the game against Colorado on the 2nd, with a 4-2 lead, he was substituted and met the winning pitcher requirement, but the bullpen immediately allowed a comeback, and the victory was lost. And in the game against Oakland that day, he went down the mound while trailing 1-2.
On this day, Ryu Hyun-jin received only 1 point, the fewest in a game in which he appeared after returning from injury. Toronto’s batting line, which had been explosive every time Ryu Hyun-jin came out, had a frustrating attack throughout the game.
From the top of the 1st to the 4th inning, runners got on base in every inning, resulting in 3 hits and 4 walks, but scoring only 1 run.
In the top of the second inning, he tied up hits by Cavan Biggio and Ernie Clement to score a run, but was unable to take advantage of the opportunities that followed with runners on 1st and 2nd bases with 2 outs in the top of the 2nd inning and runners on 1st and 3rd bases with 2 outs in the top of the 3rd inning. In the top of the 4th inning, Dalton Basho attempted to steal 2nd base with 1 out and runners on base, but he was out, pouring cold water on the team.
Toronto’s batting lineup lost weight due to key hitters such as Bo Bichette, Matt Chapman, and Danny Jansen missing due to injuries. Other key hitters, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and George Springer, were silent with no hits in 4 at-bats.소닉카지노
Toronto counterattacked late with Davis Schneider’s solo shot in the top of the 8th inning, trailing 1-5, but it was not enough to turn the game around.
Local media also criticized the lethargy of Toronto’s batting lineup. MLB.com pointed out, “Toronto failed to sweep Oakland in three consecutive away games due to a lack of scoring support for Ryu Hyun-jin.”
Toronto Sun also said, “Ryu Hyun-jin’s pitch was less sharp compared to his previous appearances. Still, he lasted 5 innings with 2 runs, but received little support from his teammates.”
Sportsnet said about Ryu Hyun-jin, “Ryu Hyun-jin, who had continued to perform brilliantly after undergoing elbow ligament joint surgery (Tommy John surgery), cruised until the third inning. However, he allowed Carlos Perez to hit a comeback in the fourth inning, and for the first time in this series against Oakland. “I lost the lead,” he said.
