The Toronto Blue Jays had an away game against the Cincinnati Reds on the 21st (Korean time) at the Great American Ballpark in Ohio, USA.
On this day, Ryu Hyun-jin threw 83 pitches (56 strikes) in 5 innings despite not being helped by the defense, recording 4 hits and 2 runs (no earned). 7 strikeouts.
Also, the Toronto line blew fire from the beginning of the game. 1 point in the 1st inning, 4 points in the 2nd, 4 points in the 4th. got a total of 10 points. As a result, Toronto won 10-3.
With this, Ryu Hyun-jin won his second win of the season after recording three consecutive games and 14 consecutive innings without an earned run following the Cleveland Guardians match on the 8th and the Chicago Cubs match on the 14th.
After his return, Ryu Hyun-jin pitched 19 innings in 4 games, recording 2 wins and 1 loss with an earned run average of 1.89. 15 strikeouts. His only performance was against the Baltimore Orioles before his comeback.
What is surprising is the redemption recorded by Ryu Hyun-jin that day. None of Ryu Hyun-jin’s balls exceeded 90 miles. He also had 13 curves less than 70 mph.
On the other hand, Green threw a fastball of 100.3 mph on the day. In addition, the changeup and slider’s best velocity was 92.4 mph and 87.9 mph, respectively.
However, the results of the two pitchers were very different. Ryu Hyun-jin in 5 innings with no runs and Green with 9 runs in 3 innings. The gap was as great as the velocity of the two pitchers.
Ryu Hyun-jin struck out by throwing a curveball to Eli de la Cruz in a crisis situation with 1 out 1 base in the 3rd inning and 2 out 1st and 2nd base in the 5th inning despite slow speed.
In contrast, Green’s fastball, which showed the opposite pitching style, was smashed by Toronto’s hard hitting line. Green allowed 5 homers on the day.
It will be remembered as a game where you can once again realize the truth of baseball that pitching speed does not guarantee everything.
