This game is a very important game that will determine farming this season. The two teams are currently competing for wild cards in the American League. Toronto is second in the wild card with 80 wins and 64 losses, and Texas is third with 79 wins and 64 losses, 0.5 games behind Toronto. With the third-place team able to play in the postseason, the gap between the fourth-place Seattle Mariners and Texas was only 0.5 games, and this four-game series was considered an important showdown to determine the postseason advancement team even before the start.

For Toronto, which gave up the first round, winning the second round became very important. Ryu Hyun-jin took on a heavy responsibility to cut off the flow of being able to move to Texas with the veteran’s official record. Ryu Hyun-jin, who returned through the game against Baltimore on the 2nd of last month after rehabilitation of Tommy John surgery (elbow ligament joint surgery), announced a perfect revival with 3 wins, 2 losses and a 2.65 ERA in seven games since then, and is expected to pitch well in this game.

However, the opposing starting pitcher is not easy to face. Max Scherzer, a veteran with a lot of experience like Ryu Hyun-jin and the best pitcher of the time who won three Cy Young Awards. The two pitchers have the opposite style. Ryu Hyun-jin, who has control, is cooking batters with a very slow curve of 100 kilometers per hour after returning from injury. Scherzer, on the other hand, is a representative fireballer who boasts a fast ball. A fierce pitching battle is expected due to a showdown between Ryu Hyun-jin in control and Scherzer in fastballs.

However, Ryu Hyun-jin should be careful that Texas’ bat is very hot. As of the 12th, the Texas batters are ranked No. 1 in the American League (0.267), No. 1 in the team’s scoring (787 points), and No. 5 in the team’s home runs (202). Ryu Hyun-jin, who has been allowing home runs in three consecutive games due to a large number of long hitters, needs to show more sophisticated control than ever.
