TORONTO – Gerrit Cole gets exactly the dominant starting pitcher in the game today, but Hyun-Jin Ryu gives a good response to the New York Yankees ticket to the Toronto Blue Jaze.
The left-hander showed more power by changing the pace and mixing four pitches over 6.2 brilliant innings to win 7-3, following his own Tuesday dominance with a gem the night before.
Ryu’s task was to master the bat, controlling the pace and throwing his cutter (25), changeup (21) and fastball (21) almost evenly, while dropping 12 turns, leaving the Yankees to guess overnight. When they didn’t murmur in their breath in the latest High 80’s cutter, tainted harmlessly if not completely missed, they teased in the strike zone of home-blade referee Eric Bacchus, which should be fair.

However, Ryu was clever enough to exploit both zones – and the frustration of the opposition – by slightly modifying the mix he used against them on the opening day, when change was the pitch he used the most at 33, followed by Cutter (26), Fastball (25) and Carvelball (seven). ).
The Blue Zeus have won all four of their starts since joining the Yankees two winters, while Cole has won three of four matches against Toronto since signing with New York, a consistent setback to help balance things between American League Eastern rivals.
That consistency from Rio extends to the league level because he has allowed two or less runs scored in 12 of the last 13 tours, since last season. There was a five-inning, five-run slog against the Yankees last September 7, which the Blue Zeus won 12-7.
They gave him enough offense once again on Tuesday to jump James Dylan out of fourth.

Randall Christch’s Sacrifice advanced to third place with a score of 3-0, while Marcus Semyon’s fourth in the season, followed by Homer and Po Pichet and Vladimir Guerrero Jr., took two more places in five.
Rowdy Deles, who finished 0-21 to open the season with a single game on goal on Monday, added his first homer of the season in sixth.
When the RBI landing of Rugney Odor in seventh brought home the undiscovered run against Rio, the Yankees climbed on board, while Giancarlo Stonton’s Jordan Romano scored two runs in the eighth, 106.9 mph from Clint Frasier’s, behind David Belbys.
The Yankees got themselves out when Gary Sanchez was too far from the first on a wild pitch, and Danny Johnson sent the ball to Guerrero, who fired it into the pitch for the third out of the inning. Picchett’s sacrifice flew in the bottom half to make it 7-3.
This helped to ensure that a less stressful night was not more enjoyable than it needed to be. Blue Zeus gave Reu an extra day off, giving them what he always does, a game in control, often they win.
