Toronto’s Hyun-jin Ryu pitched five innings of two-run baseball against Oakland, but his team’s bats went silent and he took the loss.

◀ Report ▶
Ryu took the mound after his first four-day break of the season and the injury absence of starting catcher Jansen.
But Ryu’s awl-like delivery remained the same.
He threw back-to-back 100- and 110-mile-per-hour curves to leadoff hitter Diaz in the second inning, then struck him out with a 145-mile-per-hour body fastball, and in the third inning, after a leadoff single and stolen base, he struck out the side with an outside cutter on a full count.
The fourth inning was disappointing.
After giving up a leadoff double,바카라사이트 Guerrero’s fantastic defense cleared the bases.
With two outs, I gave up a two-run homer to Perez.
It was his third homer in a row.
In the fifth inning, I also felt the absence of my best catcher, Jansen.
He stole second and third on back-to-back singles to Lewis, who led the team in stolen bases.
After giving up two stolen bases in a game, the first time he’s allowed three in a day, Ryu finished the day with five innings and two runs.
He only threw 77 pitches, but that was in consideration of his first start on four days’ rest.

“It’s the first time we’ve had our normal four days of rest, so we changed him up a little bit early. Anyway, he pitched really well early on – he got hit by a home run, but it wasn’t bad.”
With no support from the offense and a three-run homer by second baseman Richardson, Ryu took his second loss and Toronto saw its three-game winning streak come to an end.
Ryu is expected to pitch against wild-card contender Texas on the 13th.
