You're cherry-picking pitches. The other night, he averaged 96. It wasn't a 5 MPH difference, it was a 2 MPH difference.
As far as examples, there are decades worth of baseball at one's disposal to know that pitchers go through periods where their velocity will fluctuate. It's not a static thing. It's not common for it to drop suddenly over the course of a large sample, but over a few games... that's not really uncommon.
