Ryu Hyun-jin of the Toronto Blue Jays picked up his third win of the season on Wednesday.
In an away game against the Atlanta Braves, Ryu struck out six batters and allowed five hits including one home run, one walk and one run in seven innings. He was lifted for a pinch hitter in the top of the eighth inning with his team leading 2-1.
The Blue Jays won the game at Atlanta's Truist Park 4-1.
Ryu, who returned to the mound early this month after 10 days on the injured list with a glute strain, turned in his best performance of the season. The only flaw in his outing was giving up the solo homer to William Contreras in the fifth inning.
He threw 94 pitches including 63 strikes, and lowered his ERA from 3.15 to 2.95.
