Were these pitches still in the strike zone or were they up out of the zone? If they were strikes, then perhaps. If some or most were balls, then it won't really be a watershed moment. Because when he does it enough and there's enough film on it, hitters will start to lay off of them. 

 

I am curious where this leads, though.

From Sullivan's piece swinging strikes by pitch type and location:

Oh nice! Thank you for providing that. Makes me really hopeful that he can continue this in future starts B)

It's fun to watch a pitcher at the top of his game and reaching back for a 100mph fb when it matters the most late in the game especially when everyone is worried about his durability. What a defense behind him too.  First CG is a no no.

Defense was superb all night, helluva game James!

Seager made play of game!  That diving stop in 7th I believe was sick.  Healy’s emotion after was cool too.  Those guys were busting a** to get that no no for James.

Healy saved Seager earlier, was good to see the comradery. I know Ryon's defense was pretty bad last year with Oakland but he has done well so far this year and the bat is obviously there. Maybe, just maybe, we might have us a solid 1B.
