As you may have heard (or even watched), Roy Halladay pitched eight innings of two-hit ball in the Phillies’ shutout of the Pirates on Opening Day. Corey Seidman has broken down the entire outing over at CSNPhilly.com, even noting how Halladay was stellar despite some diminished velocity:
His cutter averaged 89 miles per hour and his two-seamer was 90. Last season, his cutter was 91 and his two-seam fastball was 92. In 2010, Halladay’s first year with the Phillies, his cutter was 91.4 and his two-seamer was 92.6.
