you can't pull a sinker moving down and away from you. have to go up the middle or to the opposite field.
RZ showed in that inning how you should approach a sinker baller. too bad the next 3 guys did exactly what you don't want to do.
As you said, it was 2-0. He probably wasn't thinking sinker. He probably thought he got a fat one and he thought wrong. Not many pitchers have the huevos to throw sinker on 2-0. The fact that he shattered his bat tells me it went off the end of the bat. That = Great Pitch.
