Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin did not allow an on-base hit in the third inning.
안전놀이터Ryu Hyun-jin allowed no runs in the third inning of a home game against the Texas Rangers held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on the 13th (Korean time).
The first batter, Leody Taveras, batted on three consecutive fastballs with a 1-0 count, but there was no significant gain. The fourth pitch flew high in the infield, and first baseman Spencer Horwitz caught it without difficulty.
The next batter was Jonathan Ornellas, who made his first big league start that day.
In a 2-1 count, Ryu Hyun-jin stole the timing with a change-up on the 4th pitch, causing a missed swing, and then struck out a looking strikeout with a fastball full of body, showing the fear of the big league.
The second match against Marcus Simien followed. He caught the count with a first-pitch curve, and with a favorable count of 0-2, he induced a grounder with a cutter, and shortstop Bo Bichette handled it to end the inning.
In the third inning, he recorded a three-way error, following the second inning, and saved the number of pitches. He threw 12 pitches, bringing his total pitch count to 40.
