‘Korean Monster’ Ryu Hyun-jin (36) pitched well, but suffered defeat. He aimed for 4 consecutive individual wins and 4 team wins at the same time, but was unable to achieve his goal. Still, the Toronto Blue Jays of the American Professional Baseball Major League maintained third place in the American League wild card.
Hyun-Jin Ryu started as a starter in the away game against the Oakland Athletics on the 7th (Korean time). He pitched well in 5 innings, allowing 5 hits, 1 home run, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts, and 2 runs. However, the team’s batting line was silent and he was given the mound in a situation where he was down 1-2. In the end, Toronto lost 2-5, suffering their second loss (third win) of the season.메이저놀이터
It was a disappointing loss for both Ryu Hyun-jin and the team. Ryu Hyun-jin suffered a loss in his return to the big league, but has since posted three consecutive wins. He consistently showed good performance and continued to win. He pitched well in the game that day. Although he only hit one home run, he generally showed stable performance. However, the bats of Toronto’s hitters, who had been hot until the day before, suddenly cooled off and their winning streak came to an end.
Toronto also ended its three-game winning streak. Against Oakland, which has the lowest winning percentage in the major leagues, they first recorded two wins in three games, but were unable to continue their upward trend as they lost in the game in which Ryu Hyun-jin pitched. Until the day before, they boasted powerful firepower by scoring 47 points in the last 6 games. However, in this game, they struggled with empty balls and only scored 2 points.
Still, they maintained 3rd place in the American League wild card. On the same day, the Texas Rangers, ranked 4th in the American League Wild Card, were in the same position as they lost 3-12 in a home game against the Houston Astros. The gap with the second-place Seattle Mariners has widened to 1.5 games. We must continue to wage a bloody wild card war.
Now we prepare for the most important 10-game series at the end of the season. There will be a day off on the 8th, and the game will continue for 10 days starting on the 9th. First, they begin a three-game home game against the Kansas City Royals. Kansas City is an underdog, ranked last in the American League Central Division with 44 wins and 97 losses. We look beyond the winning series against Kansas City to a sweep.
Next, they clash with Texas. We face a fateful three-game home game to secure the American League wild card. Of course, you have to get good grades. And they will play a three-game series at home against the Boston Red Sox, who are also in the American League East Division. Only by widening the gap with Boston can we focus more on the wild card fight.
Ryu Hyun-jin is expected to appear against Texas on the 13th and against Boston on the 18th. Both games are important matches that should not be missed. They will aim for victory again by appearing twice in the 10-game home game, which will have a decisive impact on the ranking battle.
