That was exciting. It was only 1 at-bat but Sale looked good. First pitch was a 94mph 2-seam fastball that resulted in a strike. Second pitch was a 97mph 4-seam fastball that resulted in a strike. Third pitch was an 84mph slider that resulted in a strike:

Pitch Type LWTS correspond to how many runs were likely to score on a particular pitch based on average run expectancy when each pitch was thrown and what happened as a result. Negative scores indicate more effective pitches.

Time to Plate is the time, in seconds, that it takes an average pitch of this type to reach the plate. This is strongly correlated with velocity, but also factors in movement.
