Ryu Hyun-jin started the game against the Cubs held at Toronto Rogers Center in Ontario, Canada on the 14th (Korean time) and recorded the winning pitcher by pitching hard with 2 hits, 2 walks, 3 strikeouts and 2 runs in 5 innings.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who underwent Tommy John surgery in June last year, quickly completed his rehabilitation and successfully returned to the big leagues against Baltimore on the 2nd. However, while cruising through the 4th inning against Cleveland on the 8th, Oscar Gonzalez hit his right knee with a 97.7 mph (157.2 km) ball and had to go down the mound after throwing only 4 innings. His injury was all the more regretful because he was in the middle of a good pitching with no hits and no runs.
It was a dangerous situation that could have led to a major injury, but Ryu Hyun-jin, who fortunately avoided serious injury, went to the mound that day without skipping his pitching schedule. In the first inning, he allowed a run due to an error by a fielder, but kept the mound until the 5th inning and did not allow an extra point. He relentlessly attacked the outskirts of the strike zone and sealed off the Cubs batters.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who recorded 86 pitches, used four-seam (39 pitches), changeup (20 pitches), cutter (12 pitches), and curve (10 pitches). The four-seam’s highest speed was 91.1 miles per hour (146.6 km), the fastest this year. The changeup demonstrated its power by recording a hit rate of 101.1 (1 hit in 9 at-bats).
Sportsnet commentator Buck Martinez, who relayed the match, said, “It’s really impressive. I was injured in the game against Cleveland, but I came back successfully,” he praised Ryu Hyun-jin’s pitching.
Commentator Martinez, who paid attention to Ryu Hyun-jin’s changeup, said, “I caught a swing with a changeup, but Ryu Hyun-jin’s changeup today was really good. He caught three strikeouts, but all of them were caught by throwing a changeup.” “Ryu Hyun-jin had a really good pitching location today. He pitched an ace down as he threw 86 pitches in 5 innings,” he added.
The best news for Hyun-Jin Ryu, who won his first victory of the season, is that he came back healthy from Tommy John surgery and a knee injury and produced good results. Commentator Martinez emphasized that Ryu Hyun-jin’s health is important, saying, “The best news for her is that she hasn’t felt any discomfort after the match against Cleveland.”
Ryu Hyun-jin, who showed a powerful pitch, is expected to pitch in an away game against Cincinnati on the 21st if there are no other variables.
