GIF: Sonny Gray's curveball buckles Adrian Beltre
Sonny Gray just threw his first career shutout and he did so against the Rangers in Arlington. He also made Adrian Beltre buckle in a big way at his hammer of a curveball.
A's starting pitcher Sonny Gray just came through with the best outing of his young and promising career. He threw a complete-game shutout against the Rangers in Arlington. He needed only 109 pitches to do so while striking out six and only allowing three hits and a walk. On the season, he's now 4-1 with a 1.76 ERA.
One of the most potent parts of Gray's arsenal is an absolutely filthy curveball. How filthy? Let's ask a man who has finished in the top 10 of MVP voting four times in his career en route to gathering over 2,400 career hits. Adrian Beltre, what do you think?
Yikes. Talk about a knee-buckler.
Gray is still only 24 years old. Shouldn't he treat his elders with more respect? Seriously, though, Gray is unbelievable. The A's have themselves an ace.
