Tarik Skubal Reaches Career High

A Milestone Achievement

During the game, Skubal achieved a personal milestone by throwing the first 100-mph pitches of his MLB career. This feat occurred during a crucial second inning, where he delivered both a four-seam fastball and a sinker, each clocking in at 100 mph.

“Was it a legit one?” Skubal asked. “I saw 99.9 on the board. I’ll be interested to read my reports tomorrow to see if it was a legit 100.”

“I’ve always joked about it, just doing it once in my career,” Skubal said. “It’s not the only thing I think about, obviously. I’m trying to elevate a fastball there. But I think it’s pretty cool.”

This performance not only highlighted his physical capability but also his potential to leave a significant mark in the Tigers’ pitching legacy.

The Game’s Turning Point

Despite not having his most dominant outing, Skubal effectively managed the Astros’ lineup before the Tigers blew the game open with a seven-run inning. His ability to maintain control early in the game set the stage for the Tigers’ offensive explosion, ensuring a comfortable lead that eased the pressure off the pitching staff.
