If it weren’t for the defensive mistake, the first quality start (QS) of the season would have been possible. However, due to a series of mistakes, Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays) had to be content with pitching 5 innings again.
Ryu Hyun-jin started in the 2023 major league home game against the Cleveland Guardians held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on the 27th (Korean time), and struggled with 4 hits (2 home runs) in 5 innings, no walks, 5 strikeouts and 3 runs (2 earned). . As Toronto won 8-3, Ryu Hyun-jin also won his third win (one loss) of the season. His season ERA rose from 1.89 to 2.25.토토사이트
Ryu Hyun-jin hit two solo home runs off Jose Ramirez in the 1st inning and Tyler Freeman in the 5th inning, but allowed 2 runs with 60 pitches until the 5th inning. Looking at the number of pitches, he seemed capable enough until the 6th or 7th inning, but failed to make a quality start due to a series of errors in the 6th inning.
After getting a right-handed hit by leadoff hitter Cole Calhoun in the 6th inning, Ryu Hyun-jin threw a changeup outside the 3rd pitch to Ramirez, inducing a grounder to third base. It was fast with a batting speed of 106 miles (170.6 km), but third baseman Matt Chapman came to the front. If Chapman had caught it, he would have been 5-4-3 double play, but missed the batted ball. Due to Chapman’s catch error, the situation with no runners in the second out changed to 1st and 2nd base safely.
However, Ryu Hyun-jin did not waver and led the shortstop ground ball to the next hitter, Oscar Gonzalez, with a changeup that fell low on the first pitch. But here another mistake occurred. This time it was shortstop Santiago Espinal. He attempted a backhand catch, but the ball hit the glove and rolled sideways. The bases were safely loaded in an instant as the batted ball, which could catch at least the leading runner on first base or expect a 6-4-3 double batting, was another error.
In the end, Ryu Hyun-jin had to go down the mound with 70 pitches. Garcia, who has a better strikeout ability than Ryu Hyun-jin, has already been put in. As Garcia conceded a run by pushing off the first hitter with a ball that hit the body, Ryu Hyun-jin’s conceded point became 3 points by adding 1 unearned point. Afterwards, Garcia struck out three batters in a row and kept Ryu Hyun-jin’s victory by blocking no additional runs, but consecutive defensive errors were disappointing innings.

Both Chapman and Espinal are good defensive players. In particular, Chapman boasts of three Gold Glove careers, but the day Ryu Hyun-jin comes out, he is particularly lethargic. In the game against the Cincinnati Reds on the 21st, Chapman cut the ball during the relay play process when Noel B Marte’s left fielder flew in the second inning with 2nd out, 1st and 3rd base. there is a bar
Toronto has 61 team errors, at least 9th out of 30 clubs. It is a team with above-average defense, but on the day Ryu Hyun-jin comes out, there are many mistakes. Ryu Hyun-jin allowed 2 runs in 5 innings both against the Chicago Cubs on the 14th and against the Cincinnati on the 21st, but both were unearned. In the game against the Cubs, there was a catch error by first baseman Brandon Belt in the first inning, and in the second inning against Cincinnati, Chapman followed by a throwing error by first baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr.
Until the match against Cleveland on this day, Ryu Hyun-jin has not received any defensive help with 5 errors in the last 3 games. Of the last 7 runs, the earned run is 2 points, and the unearned run is 5 points. Ryu Hyun-jin, whose pitching count increased despite active support from the other line but lack of support from the defense, was satisfied with pitching 5 innings in the last 3 games in a row.
