Coach John Schneider said in an interview after the game, “Ryu Hyun-jin was great. He showed good control and pitched efficiently. Watching him deal with batters makes me feel good. He has better pace control than anyone else in the major leagues.” said.
“Ryu Hyun-jin is a smart pitcher. He knows how to distinguish when he throws hard and when he throws slowly,” he said. added.
Ryu Hyun-jin will go on a hunt for his 4th win of the season in an away game against the Colorado Rockies to be held at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado on the 2nd of next month. Coors Field is a hitter-friendly stadium enough to be called the ‘graveyard of pitchers’. Due to the high altitude, the density of the air is low, so the distance the batted ball extends is different compared to other stadiums.
He often climbed the mound at Coors Field during his time with the LA Dodgers, and showed a somewhat sluggish appearance with a 7.09 ERA in 6 games in his career. In addition to Ryu Hyun-jin’s good fight, two strong helpers fell into power while his colleagues needed support.
On the 28th of last month, in a home game against Cleveland, Bisset, who hit a grounder on second base in the fifth inning and felt pain in his right thigh while running to first base, was placed on the 10-day injured list ahead of the game on the 30th. Fortunately, the condition is not serious, but Ryu Hyun-jin cannot attend the away game at Coors Field.
Bisset has appeared in 114 games this season and has a batting average of . It will be unwelcome news for Hyun-Jin Ryu, as Chapman is out due to a middle finger injury in his right hand and Bisset is also out of action. Chapman’s batting average is on the low side at 2.48, but he is a player with one shot enough to hit 15 homers.
Mason McCoy, who traded from the Seattle Mariners, got a big league promotion opportunity in place of Bisset.
