The board is now settled. If Ryu Hyun-jin wins, the possibility of PS increases even more. Korean baseball fans who want to see Ryu Hyun-jin’s PS pitch can’t help but be desperate.
The Toronto Blue Jays achieved a thrilling walk-off victory a day before Ryu Hyun-jin’s starting game.
Toronto won 4-3 after a close game in the 13th inning of overtime against the Boston Red Sox of the 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) home game held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on the 17th (Korean time).
Toronto won two games in a row after losing four games in a row. They also maintained 4th place in the American League wild card competition. Toronto will take third place if the third-place Seattle Mariners lose to the Los Angeles Dodgers on this day. MLB postseason tickets are given to the top 3 wild cards. The two teams, tied 3-3, decided on offense in the bottom of the 13th inning. Toronto, which held the defense to no runs in the top of the 13th inning, ended the game with two outs and 3rd base when Whit Merrifield hit a walk-off infield hit to third base.
On this day, both teams poured out their bullpens. Toronto used a total of five bullpen players, including sure-to-win pitchers such as Jordan Hicks and Jordan Romano. Boston had 7 bullpen players. Toronto, which won a hard-fought victory, will play its home game against Boston at 2:37 a.m. on the 18th at the same venue.
As the bullpen pitchers have been significantly used up, both teams will need their starting pitchers to endure long innings the next day. Since there is no capacity to deploy a bullpen, there is a high possibility that the battle for starting pitchers will come to a close.메이저놀이터
Toronto’s starting pitcher is Ryu Hyun-jin, and Boston’s starting pitcher is Nick Pivetta, who recorded 9 wins, 9 losses, and an ERA of 4.56 this season. Ryu Hyun-jin returned from injury last August and is recording good results with 3 wins, 3 losses, and an ERA of 2.93. He was responsible for more than 5 innings in all starting games except for the game against the Cleveland Guardians on the 8th of last month, when he was forced out early after being hit by a batted ball. Additionally, in his last match against Texas, he also recorded his first QS in 2023.
Ryu Hyun-jin will achieve 80 wins in his MLB career if he adds 2 wins in the remaining 3 regular league appearances this season, including the game against Boston. He has allowed home runs in the last 4 consecutive games, and most of the runs allowed are due to home runs, so it is important to improve this. It is expected to be the most important.
If Ryu Hyun-jin leads Toronto’s PS, it is clear that Ryu Hyun-jin’s price will rise even further. MLB is already mentioning the possibility of Ryu Hyun-jin’s contract renewal.
