Raphael Soriano came on in the 9th inning last night (8/20) to a tie game, after a few days well-earned rest. He pitched a 1,2,3 inning looking rested and his slider was back! He had good control again and the slider was beaking down as sharply as I’ve ever seen it. He obviously had worked on it since his recent troubles.
He came in again tonight. Pitched almost as well as he did last night, though his slider was not as good. They won again in a walk-off so Sori was the winning pitcher again!
I would not use him in more than two consecutive games.
