[Sports Chosun Reporter Noh Jae-hyung] The Texas Rangers announced a four-game rotation against the Toronto Blue Jays.
Texas and Toronto will play four consecutive games at Rogers Center from the 12th (Korea Standard Time).
Texas replaced one starting pitcher while applying the normal rotation. In the first game of the four consecutive games, Dane Dunning will be selected instead of Andrew Heaney.
Heaney pitched as a relief pitcher against the Oakland Athletics on the 11th and won the relief victory with four hits, one walk, six strikeouts and no runs in 3⅔3 innings. Texas beat Oakland 9-4 on the same day, reducing the gap between the Seattle Mariners, the third-ranked AL wild card player, by 0.5 games. It is only 1.5 games apart from Toronto, the second-ranked wild card player.
Therefore, for Texas, this four consecutive games must be taken with a winning series of at least three wins and one loss to reverse the situation at the end of the season.소닉카지노
Dunning, who started the season in the bullpen, joined the rotation in early May and started in 21 games, but when starter Ivaldi allowed 5 hits and 4 runs in 1 2⅓3 innings against the Houston Astros on the 6th, he made his worst day with 11 hits and 9 runs in 5⅓3 innings. Dunning has recorded 9 wins and 6 losses and a 3.88 ERA in 30 games between starting and bullpen this season.
However, Dunning is a starter. The starting ERA is 3.74, which is better than 4.56 in nine relief games. This is why Texas finally decided to take the position with “
Changing the selection of the first game also means reinforcing the bullpen. It was Hini’s first relief appearance this season against Oakland. Earlier, he was not very satisfied with 9 wins and 6 losses and a 4.22 ERA in 27 starts, and in particular, he showed anxiety that he could not fill five innings four times in the last five starts.
When Texas recruited Max Scherzer from the New York Mets and Jordan Montgomery from the St. Louis Cardinals ahead of the trade deadline, it was expected that Hini would eventually be excluded from the rotation, but it has now been implemented. As a result, Texas’ four consecutive starts will be organized in the order of Dunning, Scherzer, Montgomery, and Nathan Ivaldi.
Ryu Hyun-jin will take the mound in the second game of four consecutive games against Texas and challenge for four wins again.
Toronto will put Ryu Hyun-jin in Game 2 following Chris Bashit on the first day as a starting card to face Texas, and Kikuchi Yusei and Kevin Gaussman will take the mound in Game 3 and 4. It is to apply the normal rotation as it is. In the second half, Ryu Hyun-jin and Scherzer, who serve as the actual ace of the two teams, are notable. It is an important battle that will determine the fate of the four consecutive games.
Scherzer lost against the Houston Astros on the 7th by allowing seven runs after being hit by six hits, including three home runs, in three innings. It was Scherzer’s most runs in a game this season. It is obvious that he will take the mound to recover his honor. After moving to Texas, he had a 3-2 record, a 3.63 ERA, 14 walks and 51 strikeouts in 39⅔ innings.
Ryu Hyun-jin has won 3 games and lost 2 games, has a 2.65 ERA, 8 walks and 28 strikeouts in 34 innings since his return.
