Toronto must hold off Seattle-Texas chase for AL wild-card spot
Hyun-jin Ryu (36-Toronto Blue Jays)
Who has been winless since the start of September, will once again try to pick up his fourth win of the season.
Toronto announced its starting pitchers for the three-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays on April 23-25. According
to the announcement, 카지노사이트 Hyun-jin Ryu will take the mound at 5:10 a.m. on the 24th at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida.

In June of last year, Hyun-jin Ryu has posted a 3-3 record with a 2.62 ERA in nine starts. His razor-sharp command of his pitches and crisis management skills completely erased any concerns about the aftermath of his injury.
Ryu hasn’t had much luck in September. In four starts, he went winless with two losses and a 3.05 ERA.
After taking a pair of losses against the Colorado Rockies on Aug. 2 and the Oakland Athletics on Aug. 7, each in five innings of two-run ball, Ryu recorded his first quality start (six or more innings of work and three or fewer earned runs) since returning from the disabled list with six innings of five-hit ball against the Texas Rangers on Aug. 13, but was unable to get any offensive help.
Against the Boston Red Sox on the 18th, 온라인카지노 he pitched 4⅔ innings of six-hit ball, but was unable to get out of the fifth inning.
Toronto is at a crossroads in fall baseball and needs a strong performance from Hyun-jin Ryu.
Dropped a four-game series against American League (AL) wild-card contender Texas from Dec. 12-15 and appeared to be out of the running for the postseason.
But the Jays bounced back with a five-game winning streak from Boston on Dec. 16 to the New York Yankees on Dec. 21.
As of April 21, Toronto is in second place for the AL wild card. The third wild card in both leagues qualifies for the postseason.
Even though they’re in second place, they’ll have to hold off the Seattle Mariners and Texas Rangers. Only one game separates Toronto from third-place Seattle and Texas.
It will be 16 months since Ryu faced Tampa Bay. Ryu last pitched against the Rays on May 15 of last year at Tropicana Field, just before his elbow surgery, giving up one run on four hits (one home run) in 4⅔ innings.
Ryu has pitched well against Tampa Bay in five previous starts, posting a 2.55 ERA, but none of them have resulted in a win.
If Ryu gets the win in Game 24, he will become the 24th pitcher to earn a win against a big league team.
Is in second place in the AL East and has already clinched at least the third AL wild card and a postseason berth.
Starting against Ryu will be right-hander Zack Littell. Littell has split time between starting and middle relief this season, going 3-6 with a 4.12 ERA. 카지노사이트존
