Four different Marlins pitchers walked four straight batters to force in a run last night

Last night the Marlins did something no other team in baseball history has ever done when four different pitchers combined to walk four consecutive batters, loading the bases and then forcing in what was the tying run:

Four pitchers, four plate appearances, four walks. Amazing. And here’s the kicker: Marlins pitchers issued zero walks in the game’s other 29 plate appearances … and Miami lost 2-1.

Here’s hoping Showtime devotes an entire episode of The Franchise to that half-inning or at the very least features a montage of Ozzie Guillen walking back and forth from the dugout to the mound while the Benny Hill music plays.
