« Verlander's High-Low Approach Baffles A's in Game 5 | Main | 3-2 is a Pitcher's Count for Max Scherzer »

First Pitch Strikes from Wainwright are No Surprise

Of the 33 Pirates batters Adam Wainwright faced last night, he threw 24 first-pitch strikes, 22 were in the strike zone, 15 were swung at, four were missed, five were fouled off, nine were called strikes, four were chased, and one went for a hit.

But first pitch strikes from Wainwright should be no surprise to anyone who has watched him pitch this season.
