As a general rule, in pressure situations managers seem to like having a left handed pitcher facing a left handed batter and a right handed pitcher facing a right handed batter. One explanation could be the angle the ball travels ... a curve ball from a left handed pitcher moves away from a left handed hitter while it moves towards a right handed hitter. Odds are a hitter is not going to hit a ball that is moving away as hard as is a hitter that has the ball moving in. Of course, if that curve ball moves to the center of the plate it is gonna get hammered regardless of whether a lefty or righty is batting.
