I don’t think Adrian Beltre was expecting a curveball from Sonny Gray on this pitch (GIF)

Adrian Beltre curveballSonny Gray definitely had his A+ stuff on Monday night as he beat the Texas Rangers for his first career complete game shutout.

The 24-year-old right-hander allowed just three hits and one walk while striking out six in the 4-0 win. And it’s safe to say he had the Rangers totally off-balanced. Just take a look at that first pitch curveball he threw to Adrian Beltre in the bottom of the fourth.

There were two outs in the inning, so it’s possible that Beltre was taking on the pitch — he sure didn’t look ready to hit — but I’m pretty sure that a curveball was about the last thing he expected.

Beltre grounded out on the next pitch and went 0-for-3 against Gray.
