The Toronto Blue Jays have advanced to the postseason again.

Toronto won 7-1 in an away game against the Oakland Athletics held at the Oakland Coliseum in Oakland, California, USA on the 6th (Korean time).

With this win, Toronto not only confirmed the winning series away to Oakland, but also recorded 77 wins and 62 losses, beating the Texas Rangers, who lost 1-14 to the Houston Astros on the same day, and moved up to third place in the American League Wild Card.

The start was a close race. A tense pitching battle ensued. Both teams’ starters pitched well. Toronto starter Krieve Bassett and Oakland starter Ken Waldychuk, who visited their hometown of Oakland, balanced the score with no runs.

Bassett gave up hits to the leadoff batters in the first and second innings, but escaped the crisis thanks to double plays. In the 4th inning, he allowed a double to right-center field to Jack Gerloff, but also left the bases loaded.

Waldychuk allowed a double to Alejandro Kirk in the second inning and to Santiago Espinal in the third, but blocked them all without allowing a run. They escaped the crisis by inducing double plays in the 1st and 6th innings.토토사이트

Waldychuck went down the mound first. Final performance: 6 innings, 4 hits, 3 walks, 3 strikeouts, ending the game without a win or loss.

The balance was broken in the top of the 7th inning when Oakland activated its bullpen. Jack Neal went down with a pile of wood, allowing three walks. Toronto did not miss this opportunity. Against Sam Long, who was pitching in relief, Kevin Kiermaier hit an RBI single to left, George Springer hit a two-RBI single, and Davis Schneider hit a one-run double that hit the left field wall, scoring 4 runs in an instant.

The Oakland bench chose to send Vladimir Guerrero Jr. to an intentional throw with one out and runners on second and third base, but they conceded another run after a sacrifice fly by Wit Merrifield. He then gave up consecutive walks and allowed one more run.

In the top of the 7th inning alone, the batting line took one turn and 12 batters came to the plate, successfully scoring a large number of runs.

Bassett stayed on the mound afterwards. They gave up one run in the 7th inning, allowing a double to Seth Brown and a hit to Jordan Diaz, but the trend was not hindered. In the top of the 8th inning, right after the batting lineup, they gave up one run again, putting the pressure on them.

On this day, Bassett recorded his 14th win (7 losses) of the season by pitching 8 innings, allowing 7 hits, 7 strikeouts, and 1 run. He lowered his season ERA to 3.69.
