The Toronto Blue Jays bullpen is suspicious. There have been 2 blown saves in the last 4 days. Ryu Hyun-jin is about to take the mound, but my anxiety is growing.
On the 5th (Korean time), Toronto narrowly won 6-5 after a fierce overtime battle against the Oakland Athletics, the weakest team in the American League.
Starting pitcher Jose Berrios went down after pitching 6 innings, allowing 2 runs, meeting the requirement for 10 wins for the season. However, Toronto’s bullpen threw away the victory.
In the bottom of the 7th inning, with the lead already 3-2, Garcia took the mound as Toronto’s second pitcher following Berrios. Garcia hit a solo home run off Jordan Diaz to bring the game back to square one.
Toronto scored three runs in the top of the 10th overtime, so it looked like it would end easily. Closer Jordan Romano, who started in the 9th inning, appears to have had a hard time with multiple innings. Allowed a two-run home run to Lawrence Butler.
Romano struck out Tyler Soderstrom. He walked Tony Kemp. As the sense of crisis grew, they managed to end the game by inducing a double play to Jack Gerloff.
Toronto’s bullpen also canceled out Ryu Hyun-jin’s victory on the 2nd. Ryu Hyun-jin went down after pitching 5 innings and allowing 2 runs. As the Toronto batting line scored 3 runs in the top of the 6th inning, Ryu Hyun-jin met the requirements for a winning pitcher.
In the bottom of the 6th inning with a 5-2 lead, the 3-point lead disappeared like a mirage. Garcia allowed two runs in ⅔ innings, and Genesis Cabrera allowed 1 run in ⅓ innings. The blown save was Cabrera’s responsibility, giving up the tying score.소닉카지노
Toronto’s bullpen ERA is very respectable at 3.52. It ranks 5th in the entire major league. There are only 15 blown saves. The only teams with fewer blown saves than Toronto are the Chicago Cubs, LA Dodgers, and Boston Red Sox.
This is even more of a problem because the once solid bullpen has recently been exposed to ups and downs.
Ryu Hyun-jin will face Oakland at the Oakland Coliseum at 4:37 a.m. on the 7th. Ryu Hyun-jin has 3 wins, 1 loss, and an ERA of 2.48. He challenges for his fourth win of the season.
Ryu Hyun-jin’s overall record against Auckland is not good. He has allowed 9 runs in 3 games, 15 innings, and has 2 wins, no losses, and an ERA of 5.40. On April 17th last year, he remembers being beaten while giving up 5 runs in 4 innings.
