It was mostly topping out at 91, but he was hitting his spots, changing speeds and locations... The two semer had good movement in to the righties. He was using that all night to hit the corners.
THis ump was definitely a pitchers ump which helped since Bartolo was trying to nibble the corners anyway, but he was friendly to the Mariner's pitchers too. It almost seemed like the Ump had to be somewhere later that night.
Hmm. I watched him last night and he got no where near 95 mph on his pitches. If that particular pitch that you're talking about got hit, the radar gun was probably distorted..
