Colorado Rockies: Jon Gray Up For MLB Best Performance Award

Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Jon Gray is a nominee in the Best Performance Category for the 2016 MLB Awards, which is his franchise-record 16-strikeout effort versus the San Diego Padres at Coors Field on September 17.

First of all, to recap Gray’s night for the Rockies:

Win, 9 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 16 K.

Because Gray had complete command of the strike zone on both sides of the plate and he mixed in his nasty slider with his fastball and curveball, this led to him to a level where he completely dominated the game.

Furthermore, the Best Performance Award is for 2016’s top single-game effort. Other nominees in this category include Boston’s Mookie Betts (three home runs, eight RBIs versus Arizona on August 14, Chicago Cubs’ Kris Bryant (5-for-5, three HRs versus Cincinnati on June 27), Washington’s Max Scherzer‘s 20-strikeout game versus Detroit on May 11 and the Mets’ Noah Syndergaard‘s two-HR game and win against the Dodgers on May 11.
