Aaron Nola’s Changeup – Easy A don’t do ’em like that! Nola had a PQS last night against the Cubbies at Wrigley, but this first inning Changeup to Kris Bryant is as filthy as they come.

Shohei Ohtani’s Curveball – It seems like a given that every time Shohei Ohtani starts, he will have one of the nastiest pitches of the day. This Uncle Charlie here just freezes Abraham Almonte touching the bottom part of the zone.

Tanner Roark’s Fastball- This Two-Seam Fastball from Tanner Roark starts on the inside edge and darts towards the middle of the plate to strikeout Brad Miller. Roark pitched six innings of two-run ball on his way to his third win of the season in this one.

Dylan Bundy’s Slider – This beautiful Slider from Bundy had Kevin Plawecki trying to golf like it was his off-day. Go back to the dugout, Kevin.

Carlos Carrasco’s Changeup – This filthy Changeup from Carlos Carrasco reminds us that the dude is untouchable when he’s on his game. It also reminds us that it’s Dollar Dog Night on June 15 at Progressive Field so get ready to book your flights.

Sonny Gray’s Fastball – Sonny Gray easily had his best start of the season in this one compiling eight strikeouts in eight innings with only two hits allowed against Toronto. Let’s hope his last two starts are a sign of him turning a corner.

David Robertson’s Curveball- Shoutout to @Low_rax for the tip on this beautiful Knuckle-Curve from David Robertson in extra innings. Talk about sharp break and Yangervis Solarte didn’t have a chance.

Lifelong Dodger fan. Left the famous 2004 Steve Finley walk-off homer game in the ninth inning to clinch the division because his Giants fan cousin was late for work. Would've stayed, but I was nine.
