Kevin Gusman break
Kevin Gusman was named Toronto’s No. 1 player in Game One with his double-header on Monday. Ace Jays picked up six punches with five coming on the awesome splitter. He had Ryan Mountcastle fishing after this one.
change Michael Washa
Michael Washa is quietly having a great season in Boston – a place not many attend. Despite the team’s struggles, Wacha currently has a low-level ERA and has racked up double-digit wins for the first time in six seasons. It wouldn’t add credit to Monday’s winning column as the Sox surrendered to Rays 4-3. Washa collected seven hits and got a whiff of Manuel Margo on the change.
Lance Lynn Curveball
The Mariners came home with seven straight winners to face Lance Lane and the White Sox on Labor Day afternoon. Lane picked up eleven strikes en route to ending the Mariners’ winning streak. He finished the second half with a poorly curved ball for Rookie of the Year favorite Julio Rodriguez.
Hunter Brown Curve Ball
Hunter Brown, one of the Astros’ top prospects, appeared on Monday, and continues to show the same dominance he showed at the minor league level in 2022. Brown threw six stoppages while collecting five Ks. That sharp crushing ball fell completely off the table to inhale a whiff of Liudi Taveras.
Brady Singer Slider
Brady Singer scored just one strike on Monday night, but he still made a good start as the young royal continued to make strides in his third season. The solitary strike was so bad, it captured all the stars Jose Ramirez injured his knee on a back-foot slide.
Logan Webb Plunger
Bitter rivals, dodgers and giants on Labor Day gathered with Logan Webb who got the head start for visitors. He allowed a two-run Homer to Freddy Freeman to start but finished the run with a sloppy two-string tailgate to Trayce Thompson.
Blake Sniels Slider
Blake Snell threw a gem but got no help from the San Diego attack as Padres brought down Monday’s game against the visiting Diamondbacks. Snell collected 10 hits with a whopping eight of them coming on his slider. His first night came via Josh Rojas.
Mike Bowman Curveball
Gussman’s counterpart was the aforementioned Mike Baumann, and while Baumann didn’t find the same success, he held out against a strong Toronto lineup. He finished the day with a pair of knockouts and made Teoscar Hernandez look ridiculous on a chipped-ball hammer.
