Sergio threw 15 pitches tonight. 13 of those 15 were sliders. Of those 13 sliders, 12 were strikes (92.31%) with 5 of the 13 being swinging strikes (38.46%).

Pitch F/X on Sergio:

Pitch classifications provided by the Gameday Algorithm and may be inaccurate.

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.

Other White Sox links: Chuck Garfien tells us the story of Gloria DeSucre who traveled 2,500 miles to meet Omar Vizquel. Gloria is 80 years old. I must say she looks absolutely amazing for her age. My first reaction upon seeing Garfein’s story was ‘this lady is 80 years old? Wow!’ Like I said the other day, the ladies love Omar!
