Its safe to say that tonight’s hitters will need to react quickly to opposing team’s pitching.
Most MLB pitchers that throw in the upper-90’s are relievers, but some are starters.
Two of the few starters that can hit triple-digits are Noah Syndergaard and Yordano Ventura. MLB fans will have the luxury of watching both pitchers square-off tonight, in game 3 of the World Series at Citi Field.
The average fastball from Ventura is around 97 MPH, and the average fastball from Syndergaard is closer to 98. Both pitchers logged numerous triple-digit pitches this season.
I excited to see not only how well the pitchers do, but how deep they pitch into the game. If Ventura can give the Royals 7+ innings, it will be very hard, because we all know that the back-end of the Royals bullpen is scary.
As for the Mets, they will need Syndergaard to go deep in order for them to get the ball to Familia with the lead.
First pitch is set for 8:00 on Fox tonight.
