Toronto wins after Ryu’s shoulder injury, ending three-game losing streak
Toronto is one victory away from ending a three-game losing streak because to Ryu Hyun-jin’s heavy shoulder.
Ryu Hyun-jin (36-Toronto Blue Jays) is back on the mound, looking to bail his team out of a three-game losing streak.
The Toronto Blue Jays of Major League Baseball (MLB) dropped their third straight game on Saturday, falling 2-5 to the Cleveland Indians.
The losses put the Jays one game out of the fourth wild-card spot in the American League.
Starting pitcher Chris Bassitt took the loss, allowing four runs on two home runs in 5⅔ innings.
The recent three-game losing streak has been a combination of poor starting pitching and poor hitting.
On the 24th, despite Kevin Gausman’s six innings of two-run ball, Toronto fell to the Baltimore Orioles 0-7.
The next day, starter Jose Berrios fell apart early with five runs in six innings in another 3-5 loss to Baltimore.
In third place in the American League East, Toronto needs to win the wild card, which goes to the three teams with the best winning percentage outside of the top team in the division, to enjoy fall baseball.
Currently, Toronto is fourth in the league’s wild-card standings, 1.5 games behind the third-place Houston Astros for the final postseason berth.
With 129 of the season’s 162 games played to this point, the Jays’ fate will be decided in their remaining 33 games.
Ryu will make his fifth start of the season against Cleveland on Sunday at 4 p.m. at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada, looking to make it three straight wins.
A strong outing from Hyun-jin Ryu, 먹튀검증 who has pitched 14 consecutive scoreless innings in his last three games, would give Toronto a major boost in the race to qualify for fall baseball.
