Something has gone terribly wrong for a pitcher to walk another pitcher at any point in a baseball game. It’s a crime to walk a pitcher with the bases loaded in an important postseason game.
In a surprising event, Dodgers’ manager Dave Roberts sent Yu Darvish to hit for himself in a close game in the sixth inning with every base occupied. Not only did Darvish work a walk, he did it against Cubs’ reliever Carl Edwards Jr. on four pitches.
Darvish was pumped and tossed his bat aside with a mighty heave.
How rare was this occurrence?
Yu Darvish is only the 15th pitcher in postseason history to work a four-pitch walk. He's the 1st to work a bases loaded four-pitch walk.— Justin Russo (@FlyByKnite) October 18, 2017
Yu Darvish is 1st Dodgers pitcher ever to walk with bases loaded in the postseason. 1st w/RBI since Greinke in 2013 https://t.co/hpJp3cPIL2— Eric Stephen (@truebluela) October 18, 2017
Keep doing you, Yu!
