Heading into the sixth inning of last night’s contest, the Blue Jays were riding a 14 inning scoreless streak. The bats were stifled by James Shields on Sunday, but they came alive against Colby Lewis.
While home runs from Jose Bautista and Juan Rivera are to be expected, just take a look at the pitch location of Corey Patterson’s home run below (courtesy of Brooks Baseball Pitch FX).
Somehow, Corey Patterson managed to turn on that pitch nearly at head level and blast it over the right field fence at Arlington Ballpark for a home run.
That kind of power is usually reserved for Jose Bautista, but this was credited to Corey Patterson who usually isn’t known for his power stroke. I guess if you’re sitting on the right pitch, anything is possible.
