Joe Musgrove’s slider – Musgrove didn’t look great yesterday, giving up five earned runs over six innings, but he did have this nice slider to set down Adalberto Mondesi.
Sergio Romo’s changeup – Romo came in and did what he does, pitching a solid ninth inning to earn his 22nd save on the season, finishing it with this nasty changeup.
Patrick Corbin’s slider – Corbin had another serviceable start yesterday, giving up three runs over six innings and striking out seven, including this slider that sent Javier Baez golfing.
Framber Valdez’s curveball – Valdez had himself a nice start, pitching five shutout innings and striking out six, including this nice curveball to set down Nelson Cruz.
Tyler Glasnow’s slider – Once again, Tyler Glasnow looked great, pitching six innings of two-hit shutout ball yesterday. He also logged six strikeouts, most of which came on nasty sliders like this one.
Trevor Richards’ changeup – Richards pitched to a PACKED house yesterday and looked rough, giving up four runs over five innings. He did have this nice changeup to strike out Bryce Harper though.
