The U.S. media also praised Korean Monster Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays) for his first quality start pitching of the season. Although Ryu Hyun-jin’s pitching is said to deserve applause enough, even though he used the yoke of defeat instead of victory.
Ryu Hyun-jin started the home game against the Texas Rangers in the 2023 Major League at Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on the 13th (Korea Standard Time) and recorded five hits, one home run, one walk, and three strikeouts in six innings.
It was perfect until the third inning. Except for the walk given to Robbie Grossman after two outs in the top of the first inning, he pitched no-hitter and solidified the Texas lineup. Toronto fielders also helped Ryu Hyun-jin by showing high concentration in defense.
However, he was hit by an unexpected blow in the top of the fourth inning. The no-hit march stopped when Corey Seager, who was in the same boat when he was with the LA Dodgers, was sent to first base with a heavy hit. He was shaken immediately by allowing Grossman a two-run home run.
Ryu Hyun-jin, however, quickly regained stability. With its unique stable control, various breaking ball skills, and excellent game game operation, it prevented additional runs until the fifth inning. In the top of the sixth inning with one out and runners on first and third bases, the score and out count were exchanged with the third baseman’s score during Haim’s right fielder fly ball, but he finished the mound with an excellent record of three runs in six innings.온라인카지노
As Toronto’s batters remained silent, Ryu Hyun-jin suffered three losses instead of four wins of the season, but it was significant in that it was his first quality start since returning this season after elbow ligament joint surgery in June last year.
MLB Dotcom, the official website of the U.S. Major League Baseball, paid attention to Ryu Hyun-jin’s speed adjustment on the day through his Twitter account. In the top of the fourth inning, Nate Low struck out with a runner on first base with one out.
Ryu Hyun-jin completely stole Low’s timing with a 101-kilometer slow curve for the fourth pitch in an advantageous count of no balls and two strikes. Low had no choice but to watch the ball that left Ryu Hyun-jin’s hand without making a bat pass through the home plate and enter the catcher’s mitt.
MLB Dotcom Twitter praised, “Ryu Hyun-jin threw a 63-mile curve and completely froze the batter (low).”
The U.S. sports media “Sports Illustrated” also said, “(After striking out Ryu Hyun-jin in the top of the fourth inning), Ro’s expression returning to the dugout was irreplaceable. “I was completely affected by Ryu Hyun-jin’s change in speed,” he explained.
“Of the five strikeouts Ryu Hyun-jin caught against Texas, there was no more strategic ball than the slow curve he threw to Ro.” “It was a huge strikeout,” he explained.
When Ryu Hyun-jin underwent elbow ligament joint surgery in June last year, the U.S. media expressed skepticism about the possibility of a successful comeback. However, after a year of rehabilitation and recovery, Ryu Hyun-jin is vigorously showing his wings to revive the 2023 season.
Starting with the Baltimore Orioles on August 1, when he returned to the big leagues, Ryu Hyun-jin has recorded good results with three wins, three losses, and a 2.93 ERA in eight games until the match against Texas.
“Ryu Hyun-jin has played only five innings since his return, but he has made his first quality start,” the U.S. media CBS Sports said. “He is showing solid performance, including a 2.93 ERA, 1.05 WHIP per inning, and a 33-9 strikeout-ball ratio.”
