Towers and McClung pitched great. (Towers) has been on a roll and (McClung) can overpower you with his fastball and when he gets his curveball over he's tough. He has a great arm.

He was throwing his off-speed real well, changeups, curveballs. This is a fastball-hitting team. You?re not going to get too many fastballs by this team. He basically threw his off-speed well and spotted up his fastball when he needed to spot up his fastball.

#Fastball

He is so smart, he makes everything so simple. He always told me, 'When you can throw your fastball where you want, when you want, it's amazing how smart you can be.' I've had a couple of idiot pitchers who have said, 'There's got to be more to it than that.' He's the smartest pitcher I've ever seen. He's the greatest pitcher I've ever seen. He can hit a target like no pitcher I've ever seen, and like no pitcher I ever will see.

I figured I'd get strike one on the kid with a fastball, 92, 93 mph, and he runs into it. So, of course, I was a little pissed. I said, 'OK, if that's the way it's going to be.' So next time up, I went in on him.
Roger Clemens

The fastball away is his No. 1 pitch. How many hitters can take a fastball away and hit it to right-center or up the middle? He'll have to locate that consistently.
