Every morning, the We Love Baseball crew reviews the Nastiest Pitches from the previous day’s games in glorious high-definition GIFs. We want to bring you the highest caliber of nastiness possible, so if you see a nasty pitch, please tell us about it. You can tweet @PitcherList to let us know, and we’ll give you a shout-out here in the article if your tip makes the cut.
As a bonus for PL+ members, let us know about a pitch on the PL+ Discord in the Nasty Pitches Channel, and if your suggestion is included the next day, you’ll be entered into a weekly drawing for a free T-shirt!
José Berríos‘ Curveball
Marcus Stroman’s Splitter
Marcus Stroman tossed seven innings of one-run ball as the opposing Phillies vied for a playoff spot. Stroman would hold them off, however, and denied the Phillies the chance to gain ground over the Brewers. Stroman’s first strikeout of the evening came at the expense of Rhys Hoskins on a fantastic splitter.
Bailey Ober’s Slider
Jhoan Duran’s Curveball
Hunter Greene’s Four-Seam Fastball
Collin McHugh’s Curveball
With Atlanta’s win and the Mets’ loss, the two teams are officially tied atop the NL East with a week remaining. Collin McHugh did his part to help secure the victory, gathering four outs in relief without allowing a hit. McHugh struck out a pair and put away César Hernández on a big breaker.
