Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto) pitched well, but suffered his second loss of the season.
Ryu Hyun-jin started the away game against Oakland held at the Oakland Coliseum in Oakland, California, USA on the 7th and recorded 5 hits (1 home run), 1 walk, 5 strikeouts, and 2 runs in 5 innings. In the bottom of the 6th inning when the team was down 1-2, the ball was handed over to the bullpen, and the team lost 2-5, making Ryu Hyun-jin the losing pitcher.
Oakland, the team they faced that day, is the weakest team with the lowest winning percentage (0.307) among the 30 major league teams as of today. Ryu Hyun-jin, who pitched well against Colorado on the 2nd, allowing 2 runs in 5 innings, but retired without a win, seemed like a relatively easy opponent to challenge for his 4th win of the season.
As expected, Ryu Hyun-jin pitched well. After returning from rehabilitation for over a year, he overcame several variables well, including appearing on the mound for the first time with only four days of rest, and starting catcher Danny Jansen leaving due to injury, working with Tyler Heinemann for the first time. However, he became the losing pitcher with one home run.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who ended the 1st and 2nd innings with consecutive three-way errors, finished the inning with a strikeout in the bottom of the 3rd with 2 outs and 2nd base, and played well in the early part of the game. Toronto’s batting team scored first in the top of the second inning and was ahead 1-0.토토사이트
However, in the bottom of the 4th inning, Ryu Hyun-jin allowed a comeback. After allowing a wild pitch with 2 outs and runners on 1st base, he hit a 2-run home run to the left on the 5th pitch fastball thrown to Carlos Perez. After hitting two home runs against Cleveland on August 27th, and following a two-run home run against Colorado on the 2nd, he has hit home runs in three consecutive games as of this day. He pitched well, but faced problems with his long hits.
Ryu Hyun-jin recorded 77 pitches until the 5th inning, and Toronto replaced Ryu Hyun-jin, who pitched after only four days of rest, in the bottom of the 6th inning and activated the bullpen.
Even in the loss, Ryu Hyun-jin’s pitching received good reviews. Toronto coach John Schneider said after the game, “For the first time, Ryu Hyun-jin came on the mound after only four days of rest and did not let him pitch many innings. “He was in perfect form at the beginning of the game, and the ball that hit the home run wasn’t bad either.”
Ryu Hyun-jin also said, “Today’s pitch was pretty good. “Even the ball that gave up the home run was well controlled,” he said. “There aren’t many games left, so the future is really important.”
