Charting Danks' First Start

New, comments

I very quickly went through the Gameday data and used my own interpretation of the numbers provided -- John Danks doesn't throw an 83 MPH fastball -- to come up with this brief chart of Danks' pitch types by inning Thursday.

Pitch type / Inning 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Total
Fastball 7 11 5 2 6 3 9 43
Changeup 1 4 1 - 2 3 3 14
Curveball 1 1 2 3 1 1 2 11
Cutter - 1 2 4 3 4 5 19

Danks' only two strikeouts of the game came in the 4th, where he used just 9 pitches to retire the side. He struck out Jason Michaels on an inside cutter and caught Asdrubal Cabrera looking at a curveball.
