Toronto’s fall baseball hopes are growing.
토토사이트With an eight-inning, one-run shutout by starter Bassitt and a big seventh inning with six runs, Toronto extended its winning streak to three games today against Oakland.
They also moved into the third wild-card spot, which is good for a postseason berth.
They’re back in fall baseball range in a whopping 19 days.
That makes Ryu’s role as tomorrow’s starter all the more important.
Four days since his last start against Colorado.
Excluding his return from injury, Toronto’s win percentage on Ryu’s start date is 100%.
He’s gone five innings in every game except for the one where he was hit by a pitch.
A solid 3-1 record with a 2.48 ERA.
Despite averaging the slowest fastball velocity since coming to the U.S., he’s still proving that velocity isn’t everything with a combination of a top-notch changeup and a new-weapon curveball.
[John Schneider/Toronto manager].
“His ability to read what hitters are trying to do and adjust his velocity is better than any pitcher in the league. I thought he was great again.”
Toronto has 23 games left in the regular season.
With a half-game lead in the chase for the wild card, all eyes will be on Ryu Hyun-jin.
