Korean Monster’ Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays) will face off against Max Scherzer (Texas Rangers), a three-time Cy Young Award winner, to participate in the ‘Fall Baseball’.

Toronto will play the second game of its four-game series against Texas at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, at 8:07 a.m. on the 13th (Korean time). In the first game between the two teams, Texas won 10-4 with an explosive batting lineup.

This game is a very important game that will determine farming this season. Both teams are currently competing for the American League wild card. Toronto is in second place in the wild card with 80 wins and 64 losses, and Texas is in third place with 79 wins and 64 losses, 0.5 games behind Toronto. In a situation where up to 3rd place can advance to the postseason, the gap between wild card 4th place Seattle Mariners and Texas is only 0.5 games, so this 4-game series was evaluated as an important match that will decide which team will advance to the postseason even before the start.

For Toronto, which lost the first game, winning the second game became very important. With his veteran experience, Ryu Hyun-jin took on the important responsibility of stopping the flow of players moving to Texas. Ryu Hyun-jin, who completed rehabilitation from Tommy John surgery (elbow ligament joint surgery) and returned through the game against Baltimore on the 2nd of last month, showed a complete comeback with 3 wins, 2 losses, and an average ERA of 2.65 in the 7 games he pitched since, and is expected to pitch well in this game as well.

However, the opposing starting pitcher is not easy. Like Ryu Hyun-jin, he is a veteran with a lot of experience and the best pitcher of his time, Max Scherzer, who won the Cy Young Award three times. The two pitchers have completely opposite styles. Ryu Hyun-jin, who boasts excellent ball control, is cooking batters with a very slow curve of 100 km per hour after returning from injury. On the other hand, Scherzer is a representative fireballer who boasts a fast ball. A fierce pitching battle is expected as Ryu Hyun-jin, who has good ball control, and Scherzer, who has fastballs, face off.안전놀이터

However, Ryu Hyun-jin should be careful that Texas’ bats are very hot. As of the 12th, the Texas batting line ranks first in the American League in team batting average (0.267), first in team scoring (787 points), and fifth in team home runs (202). Ryu Hyun-jin, who has allowed home runs in three consecutive games due to the abundance of long hitters, needs to show more precise control than ever.
