Sports Illustrated columnist Tom Verducci sent shockwaves throughout the MLB this week when he disclosed that Clayton Kershaw failed to register a single swing-and-miss on 51 curveballs and sliders in Game 5 of the 2017 World Series against the Houston Astros. Well, some diehard soldier on Twitter, who was very skeptical of Verducci's assertions, actually went back and watched every single one of Kershaw's pitches from that night. Well, low and behold, Twitter user Blake Harris confirmed that the Astros did not in fact swing through a single Kershaw breaking pitch.

At this point, we don't even know what to say. Throw aside the three-time Cy Young's renowned tendency to falter on baseball's biggest stage. Even on his most glaring of off-days on the bump, his stuff is simply too filthy to not record a single swing-and-miss.

Having such a distinct read on Kershaw, one of the greatest pitchers to ever grace a baseball diamond, is about as conclusive as evidence gets that Astros batters were wholly aware of what was coming.

Make no mistake about it, folks: the Astros cheated their way to a world championship in 2017, and we can only assume that more evidence will continue to surface as time passes and hostility for the organization intensifies.
