Steven Wright‘s Knuckleball – It was the best performance of Wright’s young career as he dismantled the Yankee offense Wednesday night, collecting eight strikeouts in as many innings. His Knuckleball was simply on and his best one came against Didi Gregorius in the second inning. Physics is a wild thing.
David Robertson’s Curveball – Robertson has always accumulated excellent strikeout numbers, and 2015 is no exception. He struck out four batters in his relief appearance, including Kevin Kiermaier on this diving hook.
Brett Anderson’s Slider – It was an easy night for Anderson against the Phillies, allowing only one ER acros seven innings of work. Ryan Howard was set back to the dugout in the sixth after meeting Brett’s Slider down and away.
Kenley Jansen’s Cutter – Jansen has been very effective at closing the door this season, and his signature Cutter has carved up batters left and right. He struck out the side in yesterday’s save, starting it off with this rising heater against Freddy Galvis.
Taylor Jungmann’s Curveball – It’s been a solid start to the short career of Jungmann, and he continued the path of success with a Win over the Padres. His Curveball has knocked out a plethora of batters, and even brought Justin Upton down to his knee.
