Ryu Hyun-jin’s former colleague안전놀이터, Bellunger, was placed in the fourth batting order. Bellinger, who made his big league debut with the Dodgers in 2017 and played for the Dodgers with Ryu Hyun-jin until 2019, had the best season with Ryu Hyun-jin in 2019. Ryu Hyun-jin ranked first in the Major League ERA (2.32) and ranked second in the National League Cy Young Award voting, and Bellinger hit 47 homers and 115 RBIs and won the National League MVP.
Ryu Hyun-jin and Bellinger, who had a career-high season together, finally broke up in 2019. Ryu Hyun-jin left the Dodgers after signing a four-year, $80 million contract with Toronto. After Ryu Hyun-jin left, Bellinger also suffered a downward trend and was eventually released from the Dodgers as a non-tender at the end of last season.
Bellinger, who signed a one-year, $18 million contract with the Cubs this year, has successfully revived. In 86 games before the match, he managed to bounce back with a batting average of 3.3 1 Lee (108 hits in 326 at-bats), 18 home runs and 59 RBIs with an OPS of .942. Even against Toronto on the 13th, he showed good form with 2 hits, 1 RBI and 2 points in 4 at-bats.
Both Hyun-Jin Ryu and Bellinger left the Dodgers and met as opponents this time at the same stadium for the first time in four years. This is the first time Hyun-Jin Ryu and Bellinger have had a pitching match.
At the beginning of the first inning, Ryu Hyun-jin won with 1 company, 1st and 2nd base. After a game that went up to a full count, he made a straight hit in left field with a four-seam at 89.4 miles per hour (143.9 km) on the 6th pitch. In the 4th inning, Bellinger came out as the lead batter, and this time, he fought a full count game. Unlike the first at-bat, this time Bellinger singled out a walk.
Ryu Hyun-jin and Bellinger, who recorded no hits and 1 walk in 1 at-bat, could not face each other anymore as Ryu Hyun-jin blocked 2 runs until the 5th inning and was replaced by Henesis Cabrera in the 6th inning. Ryu Hyun-jin did not allow a hit and won the victory by decision as he became the winning pitcher. Bellinger, who played an active role in the last game with a multi-hit, failed to hit even after Ryu Hyun-jin went down, and finished the game with no hits and one walk in three at-bats. Toronto won 11-4 and ended a three-game losing streak.
