Toronto Blue Jays starter Hyun-jin Ryu throws a scoreless first inning.”There are a lot of disappointing changes in baseball,” says the late, great, ML geek pitcher.
Hyun-jin Ryu retired all three batters he faced to end the first inning of a doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio, on Monday 카지노(Aug. 8).
He did something he hadn’t done in his previous comeback: he did it in the first inning.

The process was not easy. He induced a grounder to shortstop with a curveball against Andres Jimenez. The pitch was accurate enough for the shortstop to catch in front of him.
The problem was that it was too accurate. The ball was slow, and shortstop Paul DeJongh didn’t react quickly enough. It was ruled safe at first base.
The Toronto bench requested a video review, which showed that the ball was slightly faster and was overturned for an out.
The next batter, Jose Ramirez, was faced with a 3-0 count, and while it looked like he was going to walk, he induced back-to-back fouls to get a full count.
Six pitches later, he gave up a 99.4 mph cutter to an 84.5 mph fastball that went straight to the pitcher. It hit Ryu in the biceps area of his left arm and dropped.
Despite the suddenness of the situation, Ryu calmly picked up the ball and threw to first base for the out.
