The Toronto Blue Jays’ Hyun-jin Ryu didn’t last five innings, but he was well-received by local media. After all, he didn’t give up a run and his team won 메이저사이트.
Ryu took the mound against the Boston Red Sox in the 2023 Major League Baseball World Series on April 18 at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada.
Ryu threw 83 pitches over 4⅔ innings, allowing six hits, two walks, and no runs while striking out two. Toronto won the game 3-2. Ryu left without a win or loss. He remained 3-3 on the season and lowered his ERA from 2.93 to 2.62.
Keegan Matheson, MLB.com’s Toronto beat writer, said, “Ryu gave up some runs and needed some help (from the defense), but he was still solid. His return has been invaluable given the state of Toronto’s rotation right now.”
Ryu led off the second inning with a single to Rafael Devers and a double to Adam Duvall. They had runners on second and third with no outs. But Pablo Reyes, Trevor Story, and Bobby Dalbec retired the next three batters in a row.
Ryu got off to a shaky start in the third inning with a single and a double. Again, Ryu didn’t allow a run. He got Rob Lefsnider and Justin Turner on a fly ball to left field and a grounder to third base, respectively. He walked Devers, but got Duvall to fly out to right field.
“Ryu proved to be a master at getting out of trouble,” said the Toronto Sun. He had runners on second and third with no outs on two occasions, but got three consecutive outs.
Boston was just 3-for-33 with runners in scoring position in the series against Toronto. Despite facing Hyun-Jin Ryu, they were unable to get to him in the clutch. “It was tough,” Boston manager Alex Cora said.
Ryu was pulled in the top of the fifth inning with runners on second and third and a 1-0 lead. The winning pitcher was on the mound, but a team victory was more important in the wild-card race. In relief, Yimi Garcia struck out Duvall to end the game, and it was a happy ending for everyone.
