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?

Keep doing you, Yu!
