When you have two strikes on the batter with no
balls all you have to do to strike him out is
throw a 4-seam bastball high and a little out the
strike zone. If it doesnt work keep trying it
for the next pitches. If the count goes to 3-2
then throw a knuckleball low and you will strike
Use Barry Zito or create a player that has a good
slider and curveball. Throw the slider two times
to the opposite side that the pitcher throws. For
example, Zito is left-handed, so throw it to the
right side (inside of a left-handed batter). This
will cause the batter to think it is either to
the inside or to the outside. The pitch must be
at the edge of the strike zone. After that, throw
a curveball in the upper inside or outside
corner. He should strike out, pop out, or ground

Diamondbacks for Randy Johnson.
Easy Homeruns At Fenway
If you have a big hitter such as Manny or Vlad, hold the Left Analog-stick
diagonally towards the Green Monster. This will make almost every inside pitch or
icon in the hot spot go over the wall for a homerun.
When controlling a right handed batter, point the Left Analog-stick to opposite
field (right field). Swing for an increased chance of getting a homerun over the
right field fence.
Once you get two strikes on a batter, always throw a low inside curveball or
slider. You will almost always get a strikeout.
