It’s not time to let your guard down yet!
Ryu Hyun-jin’s team, the Toronto Blue Jays, lost. They’ve gained some ground in the American League Wild Card race, but it’s not time to let your guard down just yet. One slip-up, and the tables could turn.
Toronto dropped a 2-0 decision to the New York Yankees on April 27 at Rogers Centre. The game was a pitcher’s duel between Toronto’s starter and the Yankees’ King. The hitters on both sides of the ball had a field day, with Gaussman throwing seven scoreless innings and King six.
The balance of the game shifted in the ninth inning. Toronto’s closer Romano, who had been brought in to close out the game, was blown out in the ninth. The Yankees’ Wells hit a decisive two-run shot. Romano was also on fire against the Tampa Bay Rays on April 24. With a one-run lead, he gave up two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to blow a save and take the loss. Since it was Ryu Hyun-jin’s game at the time, Korean fans witnessed Romo’s fireworks display.토토사이트
Toronto remains in second place in the wild card race. They had a 1.5-game lead over the third-place Houston Astros before this game, so a win by Houston against the Seattle Mariners would not change that.
However, a Seattle win would allow them to close the gap to fourth place by two games. With five games left in the season, that’s not a lot of confidence. It’s better to root for the Rockets to secure at least third place.
