Ryu Hyun-jin could not overcome the crisis. 

He allowed a timely hit to center field to Isaac Paredes.

He threw a four-seam fastball and a cut fastball to Curtis Meade, striking out three pitches.

Josh Law, who allowed 3 runs in the game on the 24th of last month, caught it with a fly to third base.

However, after that, all three batters were ruled out.

He threw a cut fastball to Christian Bettancourt, causing an infield grounder and putting the preceding runner out. 

He then hit Taylor Walls with a fly to center field.

Then, Ryu Hyun-jin, who had a full-count match with Caminero, induced a fly ball to second base with a changeup.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who treated leadoff hitter Arosarena with a fly to right field in the top of the third inning, threw a cut fastball to Ramirez and was hit by a hit to right.

Parades was targeted with a change-up and gave up a single to left field.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who had caught Midfielder with a fly to right field in a crisis with one out and first and second bases on base, allowed Law to hit a double to right

increasing the number of runs conceded to ‘2’. Law aimed for a cut fastball in the middle and converted it into a long hit.

Ryu Hyun-jin caught Margot on a fly to left field and did not give up any more runs.

Ryu Hyun-jin was replaced by Trevor Richards in the top of the 4th inning and ended the game that day.
