Watching it live, looked like a borderline low pitch down the middle of the plate. F/X shows what it shows. Could have been called either way IMO.
Marshall didn't have it today. He could have escaped with a different call, true, but he was still ahead in the count on Pagan when he gave up the home run.
Marshall is a terrific pitcher, I just hope he succeeds as a closer. He's a lefty curve ball specialist, not the usual type. Chapman or Arredondo appear to be more like the usual closer.
