Hyun Jin Ryu shines and Nate Pearson struggles as the Blue Jays earn a split in their Buffalo homecoming

A near heartbreaker, a near epic comeback, a bunch of home runs, and a bunch of gaffes. Wild times in Buffalo. I’m not even really sure how to wrap my head around what happened over the past couple of days.

Things worth mentioning…

Hyun Jin Ryu made the start as the Blue Jays and Marlins played the first big-league game in Buffalo in over a century and his outing went incredibly well. Ryu was an ace on Tuesday, tossing six innings of one-run ball while surrendering just a couple of hits and a couple of walks. His only mistake of the game came when Brian Anderson smashed a 3-2 changeup over the wall. But, otherwise, Ryu was excellent. He mixed his fastball, cutter, sinker, changeup, and curve effectively, picking up seven strikeouts and allowing just two hard-hit balls.
Unfortunately, Ryu didn’t end up with the W. This game had all the makings of a classic 2020 Blue Jays heartbreaker. A great start, the offence squeaks out a few runs, and then there’s a late-game meltdown out of nowhere.

How’s that for trying to capture our collective noises after Kawhi Leonard hit “The Shot?” Kawhi hit the shot that won the game. Kawhi hit the shot that won the series. Kawhi hit the shot that erased 18 years of re-watching the same VC-rim-out-AI-celebrating highlight. Kawhi hit the shot that propelled the Raptors to the highest of heights — a final four date with the league’s best team.
Before moving forward, let’s relive this epic Game 7. Where were you when Kawhi hit The Shot?

On The Latest Episode:
Game 7 in a best-of-7 series carries more pressure than Game 5 in a best-of-5 series. Conference Semis are more important than the Conference Quarters. Joel Embiid is one of the best defenders in the NBA, while Craig Ehlo never was. Sorry MJ, but Kawhi’s shot has just overwrote the existing NBA file titled, TheShot.gif.
Toronto played with the drive and energy that was simply non-existent in Game 6. Name your hustle play — offensive rebounds, steals, charges taken — and the …
