Toronto Blue Jays left-hander Ryu Hyun-jin’s turn has come.
Toronto won 4-3 in an away game against the 2023 Major League Cincinnati Reds held at Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA on the 20th (Korean time). He took revenge for the 0-1 defeat the previous day (19th). Toronto, which succeeded in escaping its second consecutive defeat, will challenge for a second consecutive victory by raising left-hander Ryu Hyun-jin on the last day of the Cincinnati expedition on the 21st.
Ryu Hyun-jin is recording 1 win and 1 loss and an average ERA of 2.57 in 3 games since his return. On the 14th, against the Chicago Cubs, he earned his first win with a good pitching with 2 hits, 3 strikeouts, 2 walks and 2 runs (no earned runs) in 5 innings.토토사이트
The player to pay attention to on the way to the second win of the season is a new player from Cincinnati. A fellow All-Star pitcher was also beaten by this new player.
On the 20th, starting right-hander Chris Bassitt, the winning pitcher, scored his 12th win (6 losses) of the season by giving up 3 runs in 6 innings.
Bassitt pitched a no-hitter until the third inning, but in the bottom of the fourth, the first batter, TJ Friedle, hit a solo home run that went over the right fence. He then gave up a walk to Matt MacLaine and lost a triple at the right time to De La Cruz. With an error by right fielder, De La Cruz passed home.
The Cincinnati rookie, who boasts a ‘bullet throw’ of 160 km per hour, is also quick on his feet. He also has contact and slugging power. He is still pointed out for his weakness that he has a big swing and a lot of strikeouts, but Ryu Hyun-jin is a player who needs to be vigilant.
De La Cruz has a batting average of 2.61, 10 home runs, 27 RBIs, 19 walks, an on-base percentage of .314, a slugging percentage of .462, and an OPS of .776 in 62 games through the 20th.
In the game on the 20th, he started as a shortstop and hitter 3 and recorded 2 hits, 1 RBI and 1 run in 4 at-bats. It was his fourth multi-hit game in August. In July and August, his hitting seems to be on the rise, but then he regains his senses.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who tasted victory 444 days after Tommy John’s rehabilitation in the last game against the Cubs, also remembers his first win of the season against Cincinnati last year with 6 hits and no runs in 6 innings.
Meanwhile, Cincinnati’s starting pitcher is ‘fastball’ pitcher Hunter Green. Green has appeared as a starting pitcher in the opening game as a young gun in his second year in the major leagues.
Green was on the injured list last month and had a rehab match at Triple-A on the 17th. At the time, he threw 83 pitches in 5⅔ innings. According to MLB.com, the average velocity of Green’s fastball that day was 97.4 miles (about 156.7 km). He topped out at 100 miles (about 160 km).
Attention is focusing on whether Ryu Hyun-jin will be able to catch Cincinnati’s ‘Monster Rookie’ and laugh in the selection fight with Green.
