Nathan Eovaldi’s Fastball – Sometimes all you need is a good old fashioned heater. Eovaldi brings 102 on the outside black here, getting a big swing from Alex Bregman.
Justin Verlander’s Curveball – A pair of home runs did Verlander in on Thursday, as the Red Sox managed to advance to the World Series. Verlander’s curveball, however, still had its moments – as Christian Vazquez found out the hard way.
David Price’s Cutter – The camera angle doesn’t do this pitch justice, but Price managed to paint this cutter right on the outside black for strike three. Six shutout innings and the Price is right – and finally in the playoff win column.
Roberto Osuna’s Changeup – Osuna’s changeup rode its way down and away from Mitch Moreland here for a big strike three.
