Rich Hill’s Curveball – Hill tossed five solid innings against the Brewers on Tuesday, striking out six. His trademark heavy curveball was money all evening, generating a huge whiff here from Lorenzo Cain.
Nathan Eovaldi’s Fastball – Eovaldi was absolutely bringing it on Tuesday, with his fastball frequently sitting in the triple digits. This first inning offering to George Springer rang in at 101 miles per hour, with late arm side run right onto the outside black.
Joe Kelly’s Curveball – Kelly only faced one batter on Tuesday, but he found his way onto nastiest pitches tonight with this hammer curveball that fell into the bottom half of the strike zone. Woof.
Joakim Soria’s Fastball – This two-seam heater from Soria fooled everyone in the building, including his catcher. Poor Chris Taylor didn’t stand a chance.
Ryan Pressly’s Curveball – Pressly struck out two of the three batters he faced on Tuesday, which included this nasty hammer to Jackie Bradley Jr. Pressly had one of his finest seasons of his career, and it is easy to see why.
Junior Guerra’s Fastball – Chris Taylor saw some nasty offerings on Tuesday, which included this backdoor heater at a cool 94 miles per hour from Guerra.
