Ryu Hyun-jin (Toronto Blue Jays), the ‘Korean Monster’, met the requirements for a three-game winning streak by tying the Cleveland Guardians 소닉카지노‘ batting line with the minimum number of runs in the worst situation without any help from the defense.
Ryu Hyun-jin started on the 27th (hereinafter Korean time) in the 2023 major league Cleveland Guardians home match held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and pitched 70 pitches in 5 innings, 4 hits (2 home runs), 5 strikeouts and 3 runs. (2 earned runs). His season ERA rose from 1.89 to 2.25.
Ryu Hyun-jin returned to the mound in the big leagues on the 2nd after taking a hiatus of more than a year as he underwent Tommy John surgery after rising to the mound as a starting pitcher in a match against the Chicago White Sox on June 2 last year. Ryu Hyun-jin suffered a yoke of defeat in his first appearance, leaving regrettable details and results, but his bad flow did not last long.
Ryu Hyun-jin had the misfortune of being hit and replaced by a 97.7-mile (157.2 km) assault ball against Cleveland on the 8th. He played 5 innings and 2 runs (visa) and ran for 2 consecutive wins. And at an important moment when the team was on a three-game losing streak, Ryu Hyun-jin once again took the mound.
The Cleveland batting line, which was perfectly tied with a ‘no hit’, allowed a ‘blow’ from the beginning of the game on this day. Ryu Hyun-jin had a good start by inducing the pitcher to ground with the 4th fastball in a confrontation with Cole Calhoun, who was showing ‘weakness’ in the opponent’s record.
Ryu Hyun-jin threw 87.8 miles (approximately 141.3 km) four-seam, which was formed high in the second pitch strike zone in a confrontation with follow-up hitter Jose Ramirez, and Ramirez’s bat turned fiercely. Ramirez’s batted ball hit well enough to immediately feel that it was a home run as soon as it left the bat, and the batted ball, which reached a speed of 104 miles (approximately 167.4 km), flew 391 feet (approximately 119.2 m) and crossed the left wall. It was connected with a solo home run. The moment when the flow of 14 innings without an error is broken.
Ramirez took a hit, but still no more runs. In the confrontation with follow-up hitter Oscar Gonzalez, Ryu Hyun-jin threw three changeups and scored an advantageous count of 0B-2S, and struck out the first by throwing a 65.8 mile (approximately 105.9 km) curve on the fourth pitch. And he ended the inning by inducing a second baseman grounder on the first pitch to Ramon Loriano.
With the full support of the batting line, he recorded his first three-way offense in the second inning. Ryu Hyun-jin insisted on playing the lead batter Andres Jimenez on the outside and struck out with a cutter, and Gabriel Arias struck out with a changeup and quickly built up an out count. After that, Ryu Hyun-jin’s ‘defense’ shone once again.
Ryu Hyun-jin made an outcount by catching lead hitter Cole Calhoun’s assault ball in the first inning with an animal sense. He finished the inning neatly while producing the count.
The first crisis was also passed well. Ryu Hyun-jin started the inning by giving lead batter Cam Gallagher a double that went to the foul line in left field in the top of the third inning. However, this did not have a significant impact on Ryu Hyun-jin’s pitching. Ryu Hyun-jin exchanged the out count of Miles Straw with the advance of the runner on second base as the follow-up hitter, then caught Calhoun with a floating ball in left field, and Ramirez continued cruising with the help of center fielder Dalton Basho’s sliding catch.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who had only 36 pitches when he got on the mound in the top of the 4th inning, succeeded in saving more pitches. Ryu Hyun-jin caught the lead hitter Gonzalez with a ground ball to the third baseman in two pitches in the top of the fourth inning, and then Loriano returned to center field in three pitches. And after scoring a quick two-strike with a curve-cutter for Jimenez, he induced a miss with a slow curve of 64.6 miles (about 104 km) with a ‘winning shot’, and once again recorded a three-way offense in eight pitches.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who had a solid pitch, gave up a home run once again in the 5th inning. Ryu Hyun-jin started the inning with a looking strikeout, striking a 90.8 mile (about 146.1 km) four-seam fastball in the middle of the strike zone against lead hitter Arias in the 5th inning. The saddest scene came after that. Ryu Hyun-jin was attacked by a curve that was reborn as a ‘main weapon’ in the first pitch against Freeman, and this time, he hit a solo home run that went over the left fence and scored the second run.
However, the home run had no significant effect on the flow of the game and Ryu Hyun-jin’s pitching. Ryu Hyun-jin threw a changeup to Gallagher, who gave up his first hit that day, and made a second out with a shortstop grounder, and also used a changeup as a winning shot to Straw to induce a pitcher grounder, ending the inning without any additional runs.
The most disappointing thing about pitching that day was the 6th inning. Ryu Hyun-jin started the inning with a hit by lead batter Calhoun in the top of the 6th inning, but succeeded in inducing a ground ball to follow-up hitter Ramirez and seemed to digest the most innings after returning to the big leagues. However, third baseman Matt Chapman made a catch error and all runners survived. The sad scenes didn’t stop there.
Ryu Hyun-jin did not lose his composure in the following Musa 1st and 2nd base and induced Gonzalez to ground the ball again. But again, the defense did not help Ryu Hyun-jin. This time, shortstop Santiago Espinal failed to properly handle Gonzalez’ batting ball, putting the bases full safely. In the end, the Toronto bench decided to take down Ryu Hyun-jin and put the bullpen in the game.
Lee Mi-mi Garcia, who inherited the baton from Ryu Hyun-jin, recorded a ball hit by Loriano at the same time as she took the mound, allowing the third base runner to score, and Ryu Hyun-jin’s run went up to 3 points. But there were no more mistakes. Garcia ended the inning by striking out three batters in a row from Jimenez and Arias to Freeman, and Ryu Hyun-jin also came down the mound with the conditions for victory.
