    Ryu Hyun-jin Season Ends with Toronto Post Season Being Eliminated… Division Series Matchup Confirmed

    AL Minnesota, Texas, NL Philadelphia, Arizona advance to division series with 2 wins

    The Toronto Blue Jays of the American Major League Baseball (MLB) ended the postseason in vain.

    Toronto lost 0-2 in the second game of the 2023 MLB American League (AL) Wild Card Series (best of 3) held at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA on the 5th (Korean time).

    Toronto, which lost 1-3 in the first game held the previous day, was eliminated as the batting line was frozen with a total of 1 run in 2 games.

    Toronto made a strong move by bringing in Yusei Kikuchi when starter Jose Berrios walked leadoff hitter Royce Lewis in the 4th inning when the game was tied 0-0.

    In the end, this was a defeat.

    Kikuchi had the bases loaded due to a single and a walk, and was hit by Carlos Correa with an RBI.

    With the bases loaded and no outs, Willi Castro was caught in a double play, but the runner on third base hit home, giving up the second run.

    Toronto's batting line had 9 hits, more than Minnesota's (7 hits), but was unable to break through Minnesota's pitching staff, which was pitched by 6 pitchers, and ended up scoring no points.

    Minnesota, which broke its 18-game postseason losing streak dating back to 2004 with a win the day before, easily passes the wild card and enters the American League Division Series (ALDS, 3 wins out of 5) starting on the 8th with the Houston Astros.

    It has been 21 years since Minnesota passed the postseason round, beating the Oakland Athletics 3-2 in the 2002 Division Series.

    Ryu Hyun-jin (36), who was excluded from the wild card list, ended his four-year association with Toronto without receiving an additional opportunity to pitch.

    Ryu Hyun-jin, who returned in August of this year after undergoing elbow ligament fusion (Tommy John) surgery last year and rehabbing for 14 months, left with 3 wins, 3 losses, and an average ERA of 3.46 in 11 games.

    Since many starting pitchers are not needed in the postseason, Ryu Hyun-jin, who was eliminated from this wild card entry, could only expect to play if Toronto moved up to a higher level.

    But with the team packing up early, his contract with Toronto officially expired.

    It is unlikely that Toronto will extend a contract with Ryu Hyun-jin, and it is expected that multiple clubs in the United States will propose a short-term contract of 1 to 2 years.

    Meanwhile, in another AL wild card series held earlier, the Texas Rangers defeated the Tampa Bay Rays 7-1 and earned a ticket to the division series with a series record of 2 wins and no losses.

    Texas' division series opponent is the Baltimore Orioles, who ranked first in overall winning percentage in the American League.

    It has been 7 years since Texas advanced to the division series in 2016, when Choo Shin-soo (41, SSG Landers) was active. ++바카라사이트++

    In the National League, the team that won the first game of the wild card series also won the second game, completing the division series bracket.

    The Arizona Diamondbacks, who came from behind to win 6-3 against Milwaukee the previous day, were down 0-2 again on this day in a visiting game against the Milwaukee Brewers, but came from behind to win 5-2.

    Arizona, which was trailing 1-2, scored 4 runs in the 6th inning to win with Ketel Marte's 2 RBI hit, a wild pitch from the opponent, and Lourdes Gurriel Jr.'s 1 RBI hit.

    Arizona will play a division series against its district rival, the Los Angeles Dodgers, starting on the 8th.

    The Philadelphia Phillies won 7-1 over the Miami Marlins thanks to Bryson Scott's grand slam, finally securing a ticket to the Division Series.

    Philadelphia's opponent in the division series is the Atlanta Braves, which ranks first in winning percentage in the National League.
