Colorado Rockies right-hander Justin Lawrence has some of the filthiest stuff in all of Major League Baseball.
We recently showed you some of his frisbee-like pitches from a spring training game that made us think his pitches just weren’t fair.
Well, he took things to an even more impressive level during the Rockies’ Opening Day victory over the San Diego Padres when he came in for one inning and proceeded to strike out Manny Machado, Xander Bogaerts, and Jake Cronenworth with some of the nastiest pitches you’ll ever see.
Take a few seconds and sit back and enjoy this show that Lawrence put on:

The announcers summed that all pretty darn well with just two word - “oh, goodness."
MLB fans loved it.
