The Brayan Villarreal Walkoff Walk Report

by Bill Chuck on August 21, 2013

Brayan Villarreal, in his first appearance with the Red Sox, walked Marco Scutaro with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the 9th, giving the Giants a 3-2 victory over Boston, and dropping the Red Sox into second place in the AL East.

This is the third walkoff walk of the season

In light of his history, one has to wonder what Sox manager John Farrell was thinking when he brought Villarreal into the game under these circumstances.

Villarreal, acquired by Boston from Detroit as part of the three-way deal that brought last night’s starter Jake Peavy to the Sox, has faced 29 batters this season between the Tigers and the Sox. He has now walked nine and allowed eight hits.

In his career, Villarreal has walked 47 of the 331 batters he’s faced now including three with the bases loaded.
