Freddy Peralta’s Slider

 

 

The Braves got the best of the Brewers in yesterday’s matchup, but the filthiest pitch of the game came courtesy of Freddy PeraltaPeralta got the game off to a quick start with this nasty slider that Jorge Soler reaches out of the zone for on strike three.

 

Ian Anderson’s Changeup

 

 

On the other side of this matchup, the Braves sent Ian Anderson to the mound and he was dominant. Anderson tossed five innings and struck out six, with four of those coming on the changeup. Here’s his filthiest of the night to Avisail Garciaa mean offspeed pitch that drops out on the Brewers’ cleanup hitter.

 

Eduardo Rodriguez’s Changeup

 

 

Eduardo Rodriguez started out strong for the Red Sox before giving up two runs in the fifth and sixth innings. Here he tossed his nastiest pitch of the night to Jordan Luplowwho swung through this filthy changeup for strike three.

 

Luis Patiño’s Slider

 

 

Luis Patiño pitched in relief for the Rays was able to toss a clean sixth inning for Tampa. Patiño was able to notch two strikeouts in his appearance and the filthier of the two was this disgusting slider that slips by Christian Vazquez.

 

Max Scherzer’s Slider

 

 

Next up we’ve got the Dodgers-Giants matchup and we’re going to Max ScherzerScherzer was masterful as always, and while there were several different pitches we could go with here (his cutter and changeup were both excellent), it’s this slider to Kris Bryant that takes the cake.

 

Kenley Jansen’s Cutter

 

 

Lastly we’ve got a filthy cutter from Kenley Jansen. Although the game ended with a loss for the Dodgers, Kenley still pitched a fantastic one-two-three inning, sending all hitters down on strikes. This pitch, his first of three strikeouts, was the prettiest as it’s a wonderful backdoor cutter to get Mike Yastrzemski looking.
