Hyun-jin Ryu pitches well…but bullpen woes cost him 4 wins

Toronto’s Hyun-jin Ryu continued his dominance today (Feb. 2), but bullpen struggles prevented him from picking up his fourth win of the season.메이저사이트

Ryu made a change to his pitch mix at Coors Field in Colorado, where long balls are pounded.

Instead of the slower curveball that had been his primary weapon since returning from injury, he used a sharp cut fastball to dominate opposing hitters.

The only run he gave up was a two-run homer in the third inning when he threw a changeup.

In the fourth inning, he was jeopardized by a questionable ball call by the umpire, but he showed excellent crisis management by retiring the next batter.

Ryu pitched into the fifth inning and left with a 4-2 lead and the win requirement, but the bullpen gave up the go-ahead run in the sixth to deny him his fourth win of the season.

Relying on Ryu’s comeback win, Toronto was able to pull off the comeback and stay in the wild card race.
