Turner's Take: The Payoff Pitch


There’s a reason they call it the payoff pitch. The count is full at three balls and two strikes. Another ball and the batter has earned a walk. Another strike and he’s walking back to the dugout. A batted ball forces the defense to make a play. On a 3-2 count, whether it’s the hitter’s patience or the pitcher’s persistence, something is about to pay off. Such was the case late Saturday night in Durham. (GoHeels.com)
