Round 2: Aaron Nola’s Fastball VS Chris Sale’s Slider

We have two distinctly different pitches squaring off in the second round. First up is Aaron Nola’s Fastball that starts well off the outside corner before taking a U-turn and whizzing back at 93mph to clip the outside corner. His competitor is a breaking ball that defies physics, getting a huge whiff from Trey Mancini as Chris Sale unleashed a Slider that went from one batter’s box to another. Is Nola’s craftiness good enough for a Semi-Final spot or does Sale’s patented Slider keep the Boston ace alive for another day?
