They said he hit 101 on a previous pitch which is some mighty heat.
I was worried that he was only throwing fast balls inside the whole 9th. No breaking balls, no moving in and out, high or low. Lieberthal was setting up inside each time so I guess thats where they wanted it. Managed to get two outs with them before he hung the HR ball over the plate. I read later that he's given up on the slider for the time being. Not sure I like the sound of that. At least move the ball around.
