He’s going for his fourth straight win. Ryu Hyun-jin, 36, the “returning ace” of the Toronto Blue Jays of Major League Baseball, is looking for another win in his first start of September. His opponent is the Colorado Rockies.
Since returning to the big leagues, Ryu is 3-1 with a 2.25 ERA. He made his comeback start on August 2 against the Baltimore Orioles, but it didn’t go well. He gave up four runs in five innings and took the loss. On August 8, he started a game against the Cleveland Indians, but was pulled without a win. He pitched a no-hitter for four innings before being hit in the knee by a pitch.
He was subsequently whistled for back-to-back wins. Earned his first win of the season on April 14 against the Chicago Cubs, allowing two runs (unearned) on five hits and two walks in five innings to lead Toronto to an 11-4 victory. On the 21st, he picked up the win against the Cincinnati Reds, allowing two runs (unearned) on four hits in five innings of work in a 10-3 victory. He returned to face Cleveland on July 27, tossing five innings of two-run ball in an 8-3 victory to record his third win of the season 먹튀검증.

September 2 vs Colorado ???
You face Colorado on the road on the 2nd. You take the mound at Coors Field, the “graveyard of pitchers”. In six starts with the Los Angeles Dodgers, he went 1-4 with a 7.06 ERA. He’ll have to overcome Coors Field, one of the most hitter-friendly ballparks in the majors, to continue his winning streak.
Looking for a fourth straight win in 25 months The last time they won four in a row was from July to August 2021. On July 8, 2021, he tossed five innings of five-hit ball in a 10-2 win over Baltimore. Ten days later, he tossed seven innings of three-hit ball in a 5-0 win over the Texas Rangers. A week later, he struggled against the New York Mets, allowing three runs on 10 hits in 4.1 innings to earn a no-decision, and on July 30, 2021, he tossed six shutout innings against the Boston Red Sox in a 13-1 victory. He then faced Cleveland on August 4 of that year, allowing two runs on seven hits over seven innings in a 7-2 victory that marked his fourth straight win.
The pressure is on, given Coors Field’s poor track record, but he’s in full bounce-back mode since returning to the big leagues. It will be interesting to see if the ‘Korean Monster’ Ryu Hyun-jin, who has been winning with his ‘slow aesthetic’, can rise from the pitchers’ graveyard and win four straight games.
