“Korean Monster” Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays) missed his fourth consecutive win in front of him, but he completely regained his ace’s prowess.
Canadian media SportsNet said on the 2nd (Korea Standard Time), “Ryu Hyun-jin scored two runs in five innings at Coors Field. “This is the same performance as seven scoreless innings at other stadiums,” he praised.
Ryu Hyun-jin started the away game of the 2023 U.S. Major League Baseball (MLB) against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado, and threw 76 pitches in five innings to record four hits (one homer), two walks, three strikeouts and two runs. He came down from the mound with the qualification to win, but the bullpen allowed a reversal and recorded a no-display game. The team won the game 13-9.
CBS Sports in the U.S. also said, “Ryu Hyun-jin was solid in the tough Colorado away game. “We limited the number of runs to only two-run home runs that he gave up to Montero in the bottom of the third inning,” he said. “In the last five appearances, he has allowed only two runs or less to the opponent.” In 24 innings, ERA recorded 1.50 and struck out 20. It is expected that he will continue his good flow in the match against Oakland next Wednesday, when he is scheduled to take the mound. 온라인카지노
Coors Field is a stadium called the ‘Tomb of Pitchers’. As it is located on a high altitude of more than 1,600m above sea level, there is little air resistance, and as a result, the ball tends to extend further than other stadiums. Ahead of the away game at Coors Field, MLB’s representative batter-friendly stadium, there were also many concerns.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who visited Coors Field six times when he was with the Los Angeles Dodgers, had a bad memory with one win, four losses and a 7.09 ERA. The disgraceful record of 10 runs (five earned) was also used at Coors Field, the most by an individual big league player.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who finished the first and second innings with three outs, was shaken in the bottom of the third inning. A cut fastball (cutter) thrown to Nolan Jones was hit to the right, and a changeup thrown to Elefuris Montero was hit, leading to a two-run home run to the left.
This is also not irrelevant to the characteristics of Coors Field. At Coors Field, the number of revolutions and movements of pitches also shows fewer revolutions than on the flat ground, and the drop is greatly reduced. Cutters and changeups are Ryu Hyun-jin’s main weapons, but the two balls connected to hits and home runs in the bottom of the third inning flowed somewhat flatly compared to usual.
Ryu Hyun-jin is having fun this season by installing ultra-low speed curves in the range of 100 kilometers per hour, but given that the curve has a larger drop than other pitches, it was rather a pitch that should be watched out at Coors Field. Ryu Hyun-jin, who cannot be unaware of this, used the curve very carefully than usual. However, it is unexpectedly valid for cutters and changeups.
However, there were no additional runs for Ryu Hyun-jin. After the home run, he had a walk and a direct fence double, but after giving up a hit to Goodman in the fourth inning, he allowed a walk on the ball decision of absurd referee Angel Hernandez, but he erased the run crisis by drawing a double play to Montero, who allowed a home run in the third inning. The fifth inning was deleted as a three-way exit in only eight pitches.
