Spencer Strider on soil for the Atlanta Braves The record-setting performance on the plinth was certainly astounding for all watching in real time.
Atlanta Braves right-hander Spencer Stryder had a sweet 16 game Thursday with the Colorado Rockies.
Strider had eight innings in his best start as a pro, breaking a Rockies franchise record with 16 games. The man who broke the Stache N Gas record was Hall of Famer John Smalls. When you break the franchise record that John Smoltz once held, you’re doing something special. Atlanta has a lot of rookie feel, including Strider.
This is every strikeout Strider recorded for the Warriors against Colorado on Thursday night.
Atlanta Braves: Spencer Strider hits 16 at-bats in record night Hand
The reason Strider is borderline at times is that he combines The 100-plus heat release points are higher than most hitters are used to seeing, along with a hard bite on his late slider. While he may have to develop a third court at some point, he’s had tremendous control over both courts since moving from the bullpen into the rotation in late May.
The ball comes out of The Quadfather’s hands effortlessly. At 23, Strider appears to have mastered the mechanics of being a power pitcher with precession. He may be one of Atlanta’s feel-good guys this summer, but all the work and preparation he’s done to achieve his incredibly efficient shooting can’t be overstated. Just watch him show Peter Moylan how to stretch properly.
While I’m totally biased towards getting the next pitcher to pitch a perfect game, even if he believes he can do the impossible . Strider previously told pitching ninja Rob Friedman that he thought he could only throw a perfect game over 81 pitches. That means 27 punches out of 81 strikes. That’s why the Strider legend continues to grow in nanoseconds. Stache N Gas Forever!
For all of us who have listened to the endless repeats of The Strokes records and kept growing beards, we wouldn’t have it any other way. Perhaps the best part of Strider’s national rise to fame is that he seems incredibly proud of proving his doubters wrong. Everyone who says he can only be a backup pitcher is in an inexplicable place…
“Yeah , the night isn’t over yet, you “haven’t worked hard enough,” when Strider strikes again.
