    Detroit Tigers blanked by Toronto Blue Jays’ Hyun Jin Ryu in 3-0 loss

    TORONTO — For the second game in a row, the Detroit Tigers failed to attack the left-handers on the mound.

    On Friday, the Tigers pulled off an improbable extra-inning victory over the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre after lefty Robbie Ray frustrated them with eight innings of one-run ball. He allowed five hits — without a walk — and struck out 11 batters.

    It was more of the same Saturday, as the Tigers (59-66) were carved up by lefty Hyun Jin Ryu in a 3-0 loss. The 34-year-old Ryu flashed a reminder of why he finished top three in the NL and AL Cy Young races in the 2019 and 2020 seasons, respectively.

    The Blue Jays needed one swing — Randal Grichuk’s hack at a first-pitch slider in the second inning — to position themselves for a victory. Grichuk sent the slider from Tigers right-handee Wily Peralta over the left-field wall for a two-run homer.

    Ryu posted seven scoreless innings, allowing just five hits and one walk. He struck out five and threw 105 pitches (70 strikes) before giving way to lefty reliever Tim Mayza in the eighth. Mayza then retired the Tigers in order.
