The Reds once had a pretty darn good pitcher named Mario Soto. He spent all 12 of his years with Cincinnati, made three all-star teams, and finished his career with a solid 3.47 ERA and exactly 100 wins. He never threw as hard as Gregory Soto, though. Soto the younger had an unsuccessful run with the Detroit Tigers in 2019, but he came into this season with a firm role in the bullpen and an ever firmer fastball. The big lefty hit the first batter he faced, but then needed just 20 pitches to record the next six outs, with four strikeouts. The above clip is the final pitch he threw that day, but some altruistic hero managed to piece together the whole dominant outing.
