Ryu (1-1) allowed only 6 / 2/3 innings, hit seven and restrained the Yankees to four hits and one walk. The ace Blue Jays has retired for 12 straight after DJ LeMahieu got a leading domestic single in his first match.
“Vintage Ryu,” said Toronto manager Charlie Montoyo. “When he takes the mound, we know we have a good chance of winning.
Ryu threw 68 out of 95 shots for shots.
“The way it played out in the game, I saw which of my shots were right for me,” Ryu said through an interpreter. “My fast ball today, the speed was there for me, so I used it more.”
The Yankees central midfielder Aaron Hicks returned to the squad and drew 3 with 4 after being allowed out of the game by manager Aaron Boone on Monday after police shot the Black man, Daunte Wright, in Minnesota.
“I just felt I was playing the game that was inappropriate,” said Hicks. “It’s hard to read that someone was murdered. He is a father to his son, and he is also a child to his mother. It is difficult when such situations happen.
Hicks grappled with this decision while driving to the game and said he received incredible support from his teammates.
Boone texted Hicks in the morning and the two met at the soccer field.
“He’s in a good head space,” Boone said before the game. “There is no doubt that he came down yesterday when we first spoke in my office. Just struggling ”.
Giancarlo Stanton, mired in skateboards 0 to 16, knocked out the Yankees in the 6-3 round in a two-leg solo run against Jordan Romero in the eighth round. As Hicks beat Julian Merryweather closer to two to two, Gary Sánchez was caught first to second after a pitch in the ground and was eliminated on the shortlist.
Merryweather did not return for the ninth time due to irritation of her left hip.
Bo Bichette gave Toronto a 7-3 lead with a sacrificial shot in the eighth inning
Josh Palacios had a second-run single in the second half and Randal Grichuk hit a sacrifice in the third against Jameson Taillon (0-1).
Semien connected for a solo homer before Vladimir Guerrero Jr made it 5-0 and finished the night of Taillon with a RBI brace in the fourth half.
Taillon allowed five runs and eight hits over 3 2/3 innings in his second game after missing the 2020 season recovering from Tommy John surgery.
Tellez had a fifth solo beating Lucas Luetge.
Romero replaced David Phelps, who had left in the eighth round after being hit in the back by Clint Frazier’s 107-mph track single.
Montoyo said Phelps had a contradiction.
