Toronto’s Ryu Hyun-jin recorded a quality start by pitching 6 innings for the first time since his return.
Although he became the losing pitcher amid the silence of the batting lineup, expectations for the remaining games grew.
He pitched at his best in the beginning.메이저사이트
He put the Texas batting lineup to rest with his razor-sharp control, and his teammates responded with excellent pitches.
He was perfect until the 3rd inning, but was missing 2 balls in the 4th inning.
He gave up the first hit to leadoff hitter Seager, and the first pitch cutter he threw to next hitter Grossman led to a go-ahead two-run gun.
Still, it didn’t make me any more shaken.
He showed skill in attacking follow-up batters with his signature slow curve.
“It’s a curve and the speed is 100.7 km/h. The batter is frozen.”
After finishing the 4th inning using a slow curveball, Ryu Hyun-jin caught a strikeout in the 5th inning with the fastest fastball in today’s game.
There were only 62 pitches until the 5th inning.
Ryu Hyun-jin was on the mound in the 6th inning as well.
Seager’s batted ball became a double due to poor defense, and in the ensuing crisis, a sacrifice hit allowed the third run.
Still, his first six finishes of the season, a quality start in 480 days, have raised expectations for the remainder of the season.

“The first reason (for Ryu Hyun-jin to pitch in the 6th inning) was the number of pitches, and the second was the pitch. Except for one cutter thrown to Grossman, he pitched well and efficiently against a really good batting lineup.”
Ryu Hyun-jin struggled, but the team’s batting line was completely blocked by Texas ace Scherzer.
Scherzer, who had pitched scoreless pitches, was replaced in the 6th inning due to a sudden injury, but Toronto was unable to turn the game around and suffered two consecutive losses, ending up tied for 3rd place in the wild card.
