RYU’s three-game match against the weakest team 3 wins against the ERA’s 7-point opponent
It couldn’t have been better. In August, he met the best opponent who could show overwhelming pitching to make up for the slump.
Ryu Hyun-jin of the Toronto Blue Jays will try again for his 13th win of the season.
Ryu Hyun-jin will take the mound as a starting pitcher in a home game against the Baltimore Orioles at Rogers Center in Toronto, Canada, on Sept. 1 (Korea time).
Three must-win chances are gathered. First of all, Baltimore is the lowest among 30 Major League teams with 40 wins and 89 losses this season and a winning rate of 301. It has a lower winning rate than Pittsburgh. The team’s strength is the weakest, with 14 consecutive losses and 19 consecutive losses this season, respectively.
Ryu struggled with seven wins, six losses and a 4.61 ERA in 18 games against teams with a winning rate of more than 50 percent this season. On the other hand, he met a team with a winning rate of less than 50 percent and overwhelmingly beat the team with five wins, one loss and a 2.25 ERA in seven games. Most pitchers are weak in the strong team and tend to be strong in the weak team, but Ryu Hyun-jin’s “strong and weak” was clear this year. There are also many teams that are more than 50%.
In addition, Ryu Hyun-jin has faced Baltimore three times this season and has become a winning pitcher. He won three hits and one run in seven innings on June 21, won seven hits and four runs in 6이닝 innings on June 27, and won five hits and one run in five innings on July 8. He was strong with an ERA of 2.89 with three wins and no losses in three games.
Baltimore’s starting pitcher was announced as Keegan Arkin. Arkin, who debuted in the Major League last year, has one win, eight losses and an ERA of 7.26 in 19 games (12 starts) this season.
Arkin, who was called up in May this year, lost eight consecutive innings with one run in seven innings against the Los Angeles Angels on the 27th and won his first win of the season in his 12th starting game. Arkin started against Toronto on June 27 and lost the game with seven hits and two home runs and six runs in four innings. Toronto batters are confident in attacking Arkin.
Nevertheless, Ryu Hyun-jin should not let his guard down. Daily baseball is a sport where a team with a winning rate of 30% can beat a team with a winning rate of 70%. Baltimore has three batters with more than 20 homers. Ryan Mount Castle (24 home runs), Cedric Mullins (23 home runs), and Trey Mansini (20 home runs) should be wary of long hits. There are also five batters with more than 10 homers. He should not repeat the previous White Sox game, which allowed three home runs.
Ryu Hyun-jin has 12 wins, 7 losses and a 3.88 this season. Though not bad, Pace has recently been outstripped by Robbie Ray, Alec Manoa and Jose Verrios on the team. Local media now treat Ray as an ace.
Ryu Hyun-jin became a losing pitcher against the Chicago White Sox on the 27th as he was sluggish with 7 hits and 7 runs in 3이닝 innings. There are two seven-run games in August alone. With two wins, two losses and a 6.51 ERA in five games in August, local media are giving a stingy assessment of Ryu.
Ryu Hyun-jin should not just add one win, but show overwhelming pitching to clean up the slump in August. Defeat in the weakest team, natural enemy relationships, and starting matchups is not acceptable.
