Ryu Hyun-jin, 36, has returned to form after elbow surgery and has been dubbed a living legend in Toronto. He is also Toronto’s victory fairy.
Ryu started the game against Colorado at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado, on April 2 (Korea time) and pitched five innings, allowing two runs on four hits (one home run) and two walks while striking out three. The bullpen struggles prevented Ryu from earning his fourth win, but Toronto won 13-9 to earn its second straight victory.
Toronto posted a photo of Ryu and a video of him pitching on the team’s social media, calling him a “living legend. They also highlighted his 2.48 ERA since returning to the mound. According to Canada’s Sportsnet, “Ryu gave up two runs in five innings at Coors Field. That’s the equivalent of a seven-inning no-hitter (at another stadium).”
In six starts, Ryu is 3-1 with a 2.48 ERA and a 1.03 WHIP. He has been the most reliable of Toronto’s starters. Most importantly, Toronto has won five of his six starts. With the exception of last month’s game against Baltimore on April 2, Toronto has won all of them.바카라사이트
There’s a reason for that. Ryu hasn’t allowed more than two earned runs in any of his starts. He hasn’t allowed more than one earned run in any of his three starts. He also has 4.03 runs supported per nine innings. Hitters are starting to feel more comfortable with Ryu on the mound.
Toronto is in a wild-card race with Texas for a postseason berth, and having Ryu on the mound can only help.
