It was Granderson's third-fastest throw of the season, and fifth-fastest since Statcast™ began keeping track last year. (His fastest was a 94-mph throw to a cutoff man this April). And it needed to be; Statcast™ also calculated that Grichuk ran from third base to home plate in 3.3 seconds, reaching a top speed of 19.7 mph along the way.
The throw kept things tied at 1, until the Cardinals took a 2-1 lead on Stephen Piscotty's RBI single one inning later.
