Japanese left-hander Yusei Kikuchi of the Toronto Blue Jays once again failed to win 10 games in his first major league debut season. 

The Toronto Blue Jays won the 2023 소닉카지노 Major League Baseball Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards at Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Maryland, USA on the 23rd (hereinafter Korean time) in the first game of the 3rd game in overtime, 6-3. 

Toronto, third in the Eastern Division of the American League, took the lead in three consecutive games and won three games in a row, winning 70 (56 losses) in the season. On the other hand, 1st place Baltimore, which failed to win 4 games in a row, became 77-48.

The first priority was the Baltimore Charge. After two outs in the first inning, Gunner Henderson was in scoring position with a heavy hit and a stolen base, while Austin Hayes hit a first-run double with one RBI against Toronto starter Kikuchi. 

Toronto immediately counterattacked. After George Springer, who led the team in the second inning, walked on base, Dolton Basho quickly turned the game around with a two-run four in the middle of the rain. It was a 0B-2S unfavorable count, but Baltimore starter Grayson Rodriguez’s 3rd pitch 97.6 mile (157 km) four-seam fastball was reported and the 16th gun of the season was reported. However, the chance that continued with consecutive hits by Matt Chapman and Danny Jansen was canceled due to a follow-up hit. 

Toronto’s batting line rallied again in the 4th inning. After one out, Chapman made a heavy hit, Jansen made two outs and second base with a base hit, and Kevin Kiermeyer hit a single RBI double, widening the gap. 

Baltimore didn’t back down as it was. In the 5th inning, Kikuchi, who was aiming for 10 wins, tied the game 3-3. Leading players Jorge Mateo and Adley Luchman set the table with 1 company, 1st and 2nd base with consecutive hits. Later, when Henderson was at bat, two runners attempted a double steal, and Mateo, who arrived at third base, took advantage of the gap in catcher Jansen’s throw to second base, and stepped home. Henderson, who was at bat, struck out. 

Baltimore didn’t stop. Advice from 2 out 1 and 2nd base that led to Hayes walk. 

The winner was the 10th overtime. With second base safely set, Brandon Belt broke the balance of 3-3, which lasted for 4 innings, with a 2-run home run by Woo Jung-Wol. Afterwards, Guerrero Jr. continued his momentum with a double, and scored a wedge with a true base and a wild throw.

Toronto starter Kikuchi only had 7 hits, 1 walk, 6 strikeouts and 3 runs in 4⅔ innings, no decision. After stepping on the 9th win against Baltimore on the 3rd, it is a winless game for 3 consecutive games. On the 9th, against the Cleveland Guardians, he became a losing pitcher despite allowing 1 run in 7 innings, and against the Philadelphia Phillies on the 16th, which was his most recent appearance, was a no-decision game with 1 run in 6 innings. The winning pitcher is Tim Mayza.

On the other line, Guerrero Jr. led the attack with 3 hits, while Basho, Chapman, and Kiermeyer fired support with multi-hits. 

Baltimore starter Rodriguez also failed to win despite 8 hits (1 home run), 2 walks, 5 strikeouts and 3 runs in 6 innings. The losing pitcher is Mike Bowman. Rutchman and Westberg’s two hits faded.
