Gerrit Cole‘s Slider – Cole proved emphatically why he was the No. 1 overall pick, tossing seven strong innings and fanning 12. His slider was absolutely masterful here, getting a huge whiff from Jason Kipnis.
Gerrit Cole‘s Slider 2.0 – The pitch so nice we featured it twice. And how could we not, after seeing this wicked offering to Yan Gomes. This pitch would be devastating at 75 miles per hour, but at 90? It’s unreal.
Trevor Bauer‘s Slider – Bauer is normally featured on here because of his two-seamer or his big heavy curveball, but here is a nice reminder that he has a solid slide-piece as well. Poor Martin Maldonado.
