The last pitcher of the day was Osiris Matos. Matos has a little bit of a strange delivery. In this photo it looks like he is reacting to something unusual about the last pitch. Actually, this is Matos' recoil, which he does on every pitch. After releasing the ball he snaps back almost like cracking a whip. Armando Benitez used to do that, but not quite so pronounced. That's probably not a good thing.
