Toronto suffered a 4-5 come-from-behind loss in the 2023 Major League Baseball home game held at Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on the 3rd (hereinafter Korean time).
Toronto, which gave up all three home matches against Boston, maintained 45-40, 4th place in the American League (AL) East Division and 4th place in the wild card. They are behind the third-place Houston Astros (45-38) by one game and are below the postseason cutoff.
It’s a pity that the game was lost even after playing Ace Gaussman. Gaussman blocked it with 5 hits, 1 walk, 7 strikeouts and 2 runs in 5 innings. He did not get on the mound in the sixth inning with 98 pitches, but met the starter requirements with a 3–2 lead situation.
Brandon Belt hit multiple home runs with a solo shot in the 1st inning and a solo shot in the 6th inning to open the score to 4-2, but the bullpen blew a lead in the 7th. Eric Swanson hit a double from Jaron Duran and an RBI from Justin Turner.
In the continued unsafe first base, Alex Verdugo allowed a tie with an error when he grounded to third base. Guerrero’s throw to third base to catch Turner, a runner on first base who was heading to third base after passing second base, turned the game into a 4-4 tie as the game went backwards.
In the end, he allowed the winning run in the ninth inning. Finisher Jordan Romano’s first pitch four-seam fastball thrown to lead hitter Verdugo led to Woo Joong-wol’s solo shot as it became a misfire in the middle. Season 4 loss (3 wins).
In Toronto, Ryu Hyun-jin, who underwent elbow ligament surgery and went through rehabilitation, will have his first real match on the 5th in a minor league rehabilitation game. His return to the major leagues is expected at the end of this month at the earliest, or early next month at the latest.
Great expectations return to the starting lineup in the second half, but Toronto should not be pushed back in the ranking fight until then. The next month is key.
