Looking off-speed

In the bottom of the sixth inning the Tampa Bay Rays were up 2-0 and had two outs. Rays starter Alex Cobb had given up four singles, struck out five, got two outs on fly balls, 10 outs on groundballs and seemed in complete control. But then Eric Hosmer doubled on a 79-mph curveball, Lorenzo Cain singled on an 80-mph curveball, Mike Moustakas homered on an 86-mph changeup, Jeff Francoeur doubled on an 86-mph changeup, Salvador Perez singled on an 85-mph changeup and Elliot Johnson ended Alex Cobb’s night when he singled on an 86-mph changeup.
