Round 1: Trevor Bauer’s Fastball vs. Carlos Martinez’s Fastball

By | |

The final battle of the opening round features a pair of Fastballs with beautiful late breaks to secure strikeouts. In the Blue corner is Trevor Bauer and a Fastball that looks to be on a path to hit Chase Headley before sweeping back over the plate for the punchout. Carlos Martinez will not go down without a fight though, as his heater displayed bite in on the hands of Chris Johnson at a blistering 96 MPH. They are pitches of the same variety, but only one can make it to the next round.
