Round 1: Noah Syndergaard vs. Noah Syndergaard

Last week I wrote an article displaying my infatuation for Noah Syndergaard’s incredible Fastballs, which was inspired by my difficult decision to choose just two of his pitches from the second half. Ultimately, I settled on these two heaters, which display different elements of his charm. First is a Sinker that rides off the plate to Freddy Galvis and is one of the best representations of ‘unhittable’ that you’ll ever see. Its opponent is a mighty Thor Fastball that turns up the dial to triple digits, inducing a frustrating swing from Freddie Freeman and a trip back to the dugout.
