Ryu Hyun-jin, who challenged his first win after returning from injury, blocked CLE tripartite offense with 12 balls in the first inning

‘Korean Monster’ Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays) took a refreshing first step towards his first win of the season.

Ryu Hyun-jin started the 2023 Major League Cleveland Guardians away game held at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio, USA on the 8th (Korean time) and finished the first inning without conceding a goal.

After two outs in the top of the first inning, Toronto batting line went out with Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hitting a double, but George Springer struck out on a missed swing and was unable to provide scoring support for Ryu Hyun-jin.메이저놀이터

Ryu Hyun-jin got off to a good start in the bottom of the first inning when he grounded first baseman Steven Kwan. Following this, he caught Andres Jimenez on a grounder to shortstop, easily increasing his two out counts. Immediately, even Jose Ramirez was eliminated with a grounder in front of the pitcher, creating a tripartite inning. He showed economical pitching with 12 pitches.

Hyun-Jin Ryu, who recorded his 75th big league win against the Los Angeles Angels on May 27 last year, has stopped accumulating wins over the past year due to surgery and rehabilitation. In his return to the major league against the Baltimore Orioles on the 2nd, he suffered the bitter taste of defeat with 9 hits, 1 home run, 1 walk and 4 runs in 5 innings. On this day, he is aiming for the first victory of the 2023 season against Cleveland and the winning pitcher after 438 days.

With the Toronto offense underway in the top of the second inning, the two teams are tight against each other 0-0.
