A payoff pitch is the "special" pitch you have available once you get a batter to a 2-strike count.

Watch where the catcher calls for the ball, and make sure you hit that pitch into the mitt.

Everytime you get a batter to a 2-strike count, this will become available. Make sure to hit the mitt where your catcher calls for it and you will get it eventually.

Pitching is a poorly explained mechanic in this game. A targeted pitch consists of three different button presses, two of which are optional.
First, you pick your breakoff point with the left stick. For a payoff pitch, you need to center it in the red box that comes up and hold it there.
Second you wind up the pitch with the pitch button (A for fastball, X for slider, etc). You can hold this button down to power it up, but it's not necessary for this achievement.
After you've hit the pitch button for the first time, a yellow recticle opens and closes. Wait until it closes to its very smallest then press the same pitch button again.
If you timed it correctly, a white circle appears at your targeted location.
You have to make a perfect pitch like this for a payoff pitch, but payoff pitches are only available after the batter has made two strikes (or missed swings).If you did the payoff pitch correctly, the number by the appropriate pitch will turn red and increase.
One final hint- for a payoff pitch to count, you have to do the recommended pitch (the one that is glowing).
