St. Louis Cardinals rookie right-hander Jordan Hicks hit 105 mph on the radar gun twice Sunday, becoming the first pitcher to throw multiple pitches at that speed in the same game in the past 10 seasons.
In 1⅓ scoreless innings to end the game, Hicks threw 13 pitches that were clocked at least at 100 mph. He brought the heat.
