First of all Narron made the mistake of leaving Coffey in to face Scott a hitter who kills right handed pitching and who also is a fast ball pitcher. That said Coffey should still have been able to get him out. Coffey preceeded to throw 4 straight 94 mph fastballs. I didn't see the hr pitch because I was watching the ball go over the fence but I would be willing to guess it was another 94 mph fastball. Any average major league hitter can time that pitch and can drive it when thrown over and over again. Something needs to be done with this guy. He has no confidence and needs to learn another pitch.
It was a change, Javy wiggled 4 fingers. Coffey had thrown all fastballs to that point in his outing. Javy had called for one breaking pitch earlier in the Scott at bat and Coffey shook him off. Javy called for the change, but Coffey through it straight down the middle. Just to note, Welsh mentioned Coffey had success getting outs against Houston with the change last week.
