Lugo on the hill

Two strikes on the batter

He steps forward

Arm moves forward

Elbow hooks right

Then moves left

Ball leaves the hand

The spin on the ball

Is unreal

The revolutions are turning

The closer it gets

To the plate

It archs up

On a rise

Then with suddenness

It falls

Batter swings and misses

As the ball hits

The Glove

60 feet

6 inches

Of pure beauty

Lugo just got a K

On his go-to pitch

The Curve.
