One time Adam Kennedy hit three homers in an ALCS game and people still unironically approach every single postseason game like "well the yankees do well against sinkers on the outer half and the astros pitching staff derpty derpty har."

Anthony Rendon hit an NL-best .358 vs 4-seamers and sinkers in 2019 according to @statcast . Brandon Woodruff threw his fastball or sinker on 64% of his pitches this season, 4th highest in the NL (min. 20 GS) Learn more about Statcast powered by @awscloud :

"King Felix" could throw three pitches at 90 mph, attacking hitters with an array of sinkers, curves and change-ups.

Outdoors: Hooks, sinkers and floats are new and improved

“He’s a talented guy," @Twins  manager Rocco Baldelli said. “I mean, 100-mph sinkers are not generally what guys see every day.” #MNTwins 

I'm kind of liking the Jorge López double dip (at OAK, at MIN) if you need wins. Big increase in sinkers since Aug. 19 with 61% GB and decent 4.08 SIERA since. Going up against B. Anderson and M. Pérez, with favorable VMI on Tuesday. #Royals 

Sandy Alcantara at the helm is engineering the #Marlins  with a series of sinkers (36) and four-seam fastballs (17), topping at 97.1 mph. Miami has made this a nine-score game, up 9-0 in the seventh.

#Yarrabah health workers have been forced to enter town under police escort after being pelted with fishing sinkers as a spate of street #brawls  drives residents to desperation.

Statcast still doesn’t have it right. Rogers’ 82 mph pitches are his sinkers, not sliders. He Kd the first hitter with a 72 mph slider. #sfgiants 

The #phillies  held. They beat the Marlins, 9-3. Zach Eflin threw a bunch of sinkers in six solid innings. Scott Kingery hit a three-run homer. Phillies are 1 1/2 back of the Cubs for the second NL Wild Card.

Jeurys Familia just struck out the side on 13 pitches in what was, at least statistically, his best outing of the season. 97-mph sinkers and four swinging strikes. Nationals 5, Mets 4, mid-eighth.

Keuchel has thrown 40 pitches through three perfect innings. He has six strikeouts, including five within the past two innings. He's gotten 12 called strikes (9 of 20 sinkers) and nine swings and misses (4 of 7 changeups).

I bought a hefty bag of Pick'n'Mix of 'Old favourites' (sort of.) The Air is a GIANT success! The Sinkers isn't bad The Twics is nicer than the real thing. The Zebra was a marzipanny disappointment The purple yoke broke my heart. But The AIR is EXCELLENT!

A bunch of belt-high sinkers from Gsellman apparently weren't enough to tell Callaway to get him out of there before blowing lead. Perfect spot for Diaz and that 4-out save the mgr said was now in play. And he wasn't even warming up.

Happ allowed 2 runs in 7 solid innings while pitching a bit differently than he usually does. He threw 4-seam fastballs less than half the time. He typically throws that pitch about 2/3 of the time. He was more diverse w/ his repertoire and worked in sliders, sinkers and changes

Was told Torres would make quick adjustments. During at bats & at bat to at bat. On Friday, Tomlin retired him on a curve. In next at bat, he belted 1st pitch curve for HR. Today, Otero threw stream of sinkers before Torres clubbed 88 MPH pitch for another HR. Talented and smart.

Gray threw 44 four seam FBs and 22 sinkers in his last start. So two out of every three pitches was a fastball. That helped him attack more and get ahead in counts. He also threw FBs up in zone. Let’s see if that continues today.

Familia loaded the bases and just decided to throw the dirtiest most important sinkers to win a huge game for the #Mets . Impressive. #LGM 

#Padres’ Shields vs. #Cubs  last night, per @brooksbaseball : 43 curveballs (43!), 25 changeups, 18 fastballs, 17 cutters, 4 sinkers.
