TORONTO – Old-school pitch duels, while two beginner players trade zeros deep into a game, waiting for each other to hook up, are increasingly rare in today’s game, which caused a lot of fun on Wednesday night’s face-off between Hyun-Jin Ryu and Max.
Both leftists have imposed their preferences relatively easily on a productive opposition line, working to move things faster and faster. Usually games like this will ease Commissioner Rob Manfred’s fast-paced game worries.
The Toronto Blue Zeus beat the Atlanta Braves 4-1 this season, with dozens of similar recordings, especially as Rue gave them a seven-innings lead for the second time this season. Dioscar Hernandez runs home.
Ryu, who made his second start since returning from a minor glut strain, threw his fastball, changeup, cutter and carveball evenly over 94 pitches, routinely hitting the Atlanta hitters in the head.
The only damage against him came in fifth, with William Contreras catching a change in the knees and shifting over the left-field wall.
When Cavan Piccio opened with a walk in the sixth, the second thief, who was out of the reunion, quickly destroyed the Blue Zeus as Marcus Semion doubled the left-field corner. They managed to raise Fried in the lower half for the pinch-hitter, and Hernandez welcomed Luke Jackson with a solo home run to open the seventh.
Tyler Chadwood delivered another important foreign innings in the eighth – getting Ronald Aguna Jr., Freddie Freeman and Marcel Hosuna without issue – and then adding when Hernandez paid for his second home with a Po Pichet single in the ninth against Josh Tomlin. Night.
AJ Cole advanced to ninth place as the Blue Jays advanced 5-0 against Atlanta on Thursday afternoon, when the Rose stripping against Charlie Morton began.
Hernandez’s big shots were obviously important, but Rue’s seven innings again set the stage for a late rally, as did Robbie Ray’s six innings in Tuesday’s 5-3 victory.
The Blue Jays enjoyed only one game in seven innings last season, and that too by Rio. Senior Lefty gave up seven frames in Texas on April 7, but the cycle has given up only 10 games in at least six innings in total this season.
