In his last game against the Los Angles Angels on Wednesday, he again showed his magic allowing only 3 hits and no runs whilst punching-out 11 batters in six innings.
This one Gif (created by redditors DShep) truly shows how amazing Darvish is:
|an accurate depiction of what it feels like for a batter facing him|
DShep states the gif was "An experiment in showing a variety of pitch types in a unique way. Used 5 pitches from last night; a 97 mph 4 seam fastball, 96 mph 2 seam fastball, 85 mph slider, 78 mph slider with a different grip that is more vertical, and a 64 mph slow curve."
Apart from it looking so-damn awesome, what is interesting is how the motion and release and speed of the 5 pitches are almost identical to a point... So I guess the only way your gonna get a hit off this guy is sacrificing your first born!
What's even more scary is it is claimed that he has another 5 pitches. Yeah, not even Chris Brown can hit this! (below-the-belt?)
