Toronto team praises Ryu Hyun-jin as a ‘living legend’ in Korean on social media
The Canadian media highly praised the pitching of Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays), who gave only 2 points at Coors Field, the ‘graveyard of pitchers’. 카지노사이트
Toronto defeated the Colorado Rockies 13-9 in an American professional baseball Major League (MLB) visiting game played at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado, USA,
located at an altitude of 1,610 meters above sea level on the 2nd (Korean time).
Starting pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin allowed 4 hits, including 1 home run, 2 walks, and 2 runs in 5 innings.
Ryu Hyun-jin met the winning pitcher requirements and was replaced at the start of the 6th inning with a 4-2 lead,
but the relief pitcher immediately hit a come-from-behind 3-run home run, so he missed out on his 4th win of the season.
Coors Field, where batted balls travel straight due to low air resistance, is paradise for hitters and hell for pitchers.
Even though Ryu Hyun-jin was pitching at Coors Field for the first time in four years,
he did not mind and laid the foundation for another comeback victory by suppressing the number of goals conceded with his unique pace control.
As expected, both teams’ batting lineups were so active that the phrase ‘Coors Field’ was coined.
Toronto had 17 hits, including 3 home runs, and Colorado, which added four runs in the 9th inning to face a crushing defeat, hit 2 home runs and 12 hits.
Canadian media Sportsnet said in an online article,
Starting pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin’s 2 runs in 5 innings at Coors Field is equivalent to 7 scoreless innings (at another stadium),”
“Ryu Hyun-jin could have continued to pitch in the 6th inning, but Toronto manager John Schneider “Used sufficiently refreshed bullpen pitchers,” he said.
The daily newspaper Toronto Sun indirectly criticized pitch umpire Angel Hernández,
who caused controversy that day, saying Ryu Hyun-jin was not called on several strikes.
Umpire Hernández, who is notorious for being inconsistent in his judgment of strikes and balls in the big leagues,
ruled a strike that came in without a hitch as a ball on this day, and Ryu Hyun-jin was put in danger by absurdly giving a walk.
The Toronto Sun said Ryu Hyun-jin allowed four hits and a two-run home run in five innings,
but the important thing was that Ryu Hyun-jin gave the team what it needed before activating the bullpen,
with a 4-2 lead, the bullpen pitchers were selected to come out.
He highly evaluated Ryu Hyun-jin, who laid the foundation as a pitcher.
The Toronto team wrote ‘Living Legend’ in Korean on the SNS X account and posted photos and videos of Ryu Hyun-jin fighting hard.
In addition, he praised Ryu Hyun-jin, who is cruising with an ERA of 2.48 after his return.
American and Canadian media covering the Toronto team, including MLB,
heavily covered the fact that Toronto won on this day,
the day it began a six-game road trip to the western United States,
reducing its lead over the third-place Texas Rangers in the American League wild card race to 1.5 games.
Toronto’s wild card rivals, the Seattle Mariners, Houston Astros, and Texas, all lost.
The gap with Houston, second place in the league’s wild card, was narrowed to 2.5 games.
In the postseason, excluding the three district champions and three teams,
three wild card teams with high winning percentages in the league will participate.
