Toronto Blue Jays
Toronto Blue Jays have a neat pitching unit, but they need more strength from the plate. Restricting a top team like Tampa to score just three runs was an amazing job from Toronto’s pitching unit. Starting pitcher Matt Shoemaker did well as he threw three scoreless innings and gave up just two hits. From the plate, Toronto was weak as Bo Bichette was the lone scorer for his team. Taking the mound as their starting pitcher in game two is Hyun-Jin Ryu. The talented pitcher held an ERA of 2.89 with a 5-2 record in their regular season. Ryu had seven scoreless innings against the Yankees previously.
