Round 1: Danny Salazar’s Changeup vs. Kevin Gausman’s Changeup
It’s a battle of Changeups with Danny Salazar and Kevin Gausman going toe-to-toe. Salazar sets the tone with a fading change piece to MVP candidate Josh Donaldson, breaking right under the hands for the swing-and-miss. Gausman has an impressive secondary pitch of his own and displayed it perfectly to Ezequiel Carrera as the Changeup dropped out of nowhere. Nasty stuff all around.
