Walking hitters is never a good idea, and doing it a double-digit number of times is even worse.
Red Sox pitchers walked a whopping 10 batters on Wednesday night, paving the way for a blowout loss to Tampa Bay. Of course, some sloppy plays in the field and on the basepaths didn't help either.
At least Scott Atchison was able to escape unscathed, tossing 1 2/3 innings of scoreless (and walk-less) baseball en route to a 13-3 Rays win.
NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is giving Atchison our "Walk, Don't Run" player of the game. Who's yours?
