He only threw a handful of curveballs in that Oakland game. He worked the majority of that game with his fastball, and threw his change off of his fastball. His command was very good in that game, both with his fastball and his change. The curves he threw in that game were pretty good as well with 1 or 2 being excellent pitches. The other ones looked more like they were for show as they started out of the zone and stayed out of the zone, but still had good movement on them. They were "waste" pitches when he was ahead in the count.
