Jose Urquidy’s Slider
Urquidy was asked to accomplish a big task last night: shut down a hot Nationals offense for as long as he could. He came through in spades, scattering 2 hits across 5 innings. The Nats seemed off balance against him all night, much of which can be attributed to his deadly slider.
Patrick Corbin’s Slider
Corbin has had one of the best sliders in baseball for the past few years and he showed it last night. This pitch looks like a strike until it isn’t – not fun for the opposition.
Jose Urquidy’s Curveball
Urquidy had everything going last night. Darting change, 95 mph heat, slider that falls away. Then you get this beast – a phenomenal put away curveball that he uses to fool Ryan Zimmerman.
