Pitchers who went four walks

by Bill Chuck on July 11, 2013

Not a bad headline, huh? MLB Network, if you end up using this content go with Aerosmith’s “Walk This Way.”

I noticed that there were a plethora of pitchers last night who walked at least four batters, and while their were results were not terrific, they were not as bad as you would expect.
