Toronto won 6-5 after extra time against the Oakland Athletics at the Ring Central Coliseum in Oakland, California on the 5th. 토토사이트링크 Toronto has continued its upward trend with seven wins and three losses in its last 10 games.
Toronto, which has won more than 90 games for the second consecutive year, has been sluggish this season. It’s been hovering around the 50% winning rate all along the way. He never rose to the top of the American League (AL) East Division and remained in third to fourth place. The postseason didn’t seem easy because it was such a competitive district. It has already played more than 10 games against the Baltimore Orioles, the No. 1 player in the district.
But there is a wild card hope. In the Major League, the top three teams in the league’s winning rate, excluding the top-ranked teams in the district, will play in the postseason. Toronto is fourth in the AL wild card race as of the 5th. It is only 0.5 games apart from the Houston Astros and Texas Rangers, who are tied for second place. The fifth-ranked Boston Red Sox are 4.5 games apart, so the three teams seem to be competing for two tickets.
Toronto’s rebound is in line with Ryu’s joining. Ryu Hyun-jin, who underwent elbow ligament reconstruction in June last year, returned after a year and two months as promised. He started against Baltimore on the 2nd of last month and played in six games.
He also has good grades. With 3 wins, 1 loss and a 2.48 ERA, he played 5 innings in each game except for the Cleveland match on the 8th of last month when he was hit by a batter’s thigh. He could throw more because he managed the number of pitches well, but coach John Schneider did not overdo it. The maximum speed is still 2 to 3 kilometers per hour less than before the injury, but the unique control remained. Toronto has won five games (one loss) in six games Ryu Hyun-jin took the mound.
There was a question mark on Ryu Hyun-jin’s return. It’s because of a considerable age. A strong starting lineup had already been formed. Kevin Gaussman, Jose Berrios One-Two Punch, Chris Bashit, Alec Manoa, and Yusei Kikuchi were all performing well.
However, Ryu Hyun-jin pitched better than expected. Toronto, which was worried about Manoa’s sluggish performance with 3 wins, 9 losses and a 5.87 ERA, was able to lower Manoa to the minor leagues thanks to Ryu Hyun-jin.
Toronto recently missed Bobiechet, Matt Chapman and Danny Jensen due to injuries. However, rookies Ernie Clement and David Schneider are filling the vacancy well. The bullpen is also stable. If the starters do as they do now, they can go to the postseason enough. Ryu Hyun-jin, who has about five appearances left, is in desperate need.
Ryu’s next opponent is the Oakland Athletics. He was expected to start the game at 4:37 a.m. on the 7th. Oakland is the weakest team among the 30 MLB clubs. The winning rate is only 0.304 (42 wins and 96 losses). Already giving up grades, rebuilding.
In particular, the batting line is weak. He is the “water bat” that ranks last in the team’s batting average (0.224) and OPS (long-range on-base percentage, 0.672). Most of the batters were composed of less experienced players. There are only four batters who have faced Ryu Hyun-jin. It is an advantageous condition for Ryu Hyun-jin, who throws various pitches.
Left-handed pitcher J.P. Sears is likely to start the opponent. It is his second year in the big league since he moved to Oakland from the New York Yankees last year. He started 27 games this year, but he has the same three wins (11 losses and a 4.60 ERA) as Ryu Hyun-jin.
