He was throwing some serious gas, hit 96 a bunch of times. He did hang the curve a few too many times though.
Could you tell his new cut fastball apart from his regular heat and about how many times did he break out the change?
Yeah, I noticed he threw a few of those cut fastballs.
They were about 3 to 7 mph slower than the 4 seamer. I'm pretty sure he got at least 1 strikeout with that pitch.
He was mixing up his pitches pretty well. There was one at bat where he unleased a NASTY curve for a strikeout. Looked very good, as he was dealing the last 2 innings. When you can HEAR his fastball coming, you know he is bringing it.
