Is this ‘management’ really helpful to Ryu Hyun-jin and the team?
Ryu Hyun-jin of the U.S. Major League Toronto Blue Jays suffered his second loss of the season. It was a game that seemed to have the highest probability of victory after returning from injury, but the loss was in vain. The team also failed in its attempt to win four games in a row.
Ryu Hyun-jin made his 7th start of the season against the Oakland Athletics held at the Oakland Coliseum on the 7th (Korean time). Ryu Hyun-jin, who took more than a year off after elbow surgery, returned after difficult rehabilitation and showed a smooth pace. It was time to focus on that. Toronto had won three games in a row until the previous day and regained third place in the wild card race. The opponent, Oakland, was the last team with the lowest winning percentage in the entire major league. Both pitches and hits were at their worst. Although it was an away game, the Oakland Coliseum was a pitcher-friendly stadium, so conditions could be advantageous for Ryu Hyun-jin.
But the game went wrong. Ryu Hyun-jin threw well. 5 innings, 2 runs allowed. It was very unfortunate that he allowed a two-run home run to Perez in the 4th inning, but it is encouraging that he continued to pitch 2-3 runs in 5 innings. On this day, it was disappointing that the batting lineup that had been so strong was silent.
What’s disappointing is episode 6. We were down by 1-2 by 1 point. Until the 5th inning, Ryu Hyun-jin had only 77 pitches. If Ryu Hyun-jin could last about one more inning, Toronto would have a chance to turn the tables against the opposing bullpen because Toronto had a strong batting lineup.
But Ryu Hyun-jin went down. Then, Miller appeared and allowed a three-run shot to his opponent Smith, completely shifting the mood of the game towards Oakland.토토사이트
Ryu Hyun-jin faced a crisis in the 4th and 5th innings, but wisely overcame it. Since it was the 7th game after his return, it was okay to slightly increase the number of innings and pitches. However, a question mark cannot help but be placed on coach John Schneider’s decision to give up the game while disqualifying Ryu Hyun-jin. It was unfortunate for the players that the losses piled up, and it must have been difficult for Toronto fans to understand that the finals of each game were such a pointless loss for the team.
Manager Schneider cited Ryu Hyun-jin’s early dismissal as the reason for pitching after resting for the first four days after his return. It was an expected reaction. But it’s time for Toronto to go all out. Ryu Hyun-jin is the key player in the final rebound. Unless he was really pushing things too hard, Coach Schneider also had to take a gamble. Ryu Hyun-jin also needs to gradually increase his stamina.
