Here we have a pair lively Fastballs from two young pitchers. Aaron Nola struck out Ian Desmond with a heater that featured some excellent diving action across the plate that you need to watch a few times to fully grasp. Meanwhile, Ryan Weber generates a ton of horizontal movement on his Fastball, tossing a pitch that starts at Cody Asche’s hip before sliding through the strikezone.
