Aroldis Chapman walks four batters, Rockies walk off on Drew Stubbs’ home run

7 Comments

For just the second time in 244 major league appearances, Reds closer Aroldis Chapman walked four batters in the same game. The last incident occurred on May 15, 2011 against the Cardinals, when Chapman walked four of five batters. On Sunday, in the first game of a double-header against the Rockies, Chapman walked four of four.

The Reds’ trainer visited Chapman to inquirer about potential discomfort, but left and Chapman stayed in the game, only to continue with the wildness. He threw 28 pitches in total, but only 12 were strikes. J.J. Hoover relieved the lefty, but allowed a sacrifice fly to Wilin Rosario before serving up a two-out, three-run, walk-off home run to Drew Stubbs. The five-run ninth resulted in a 10-9 victory for the Rockies.

The two clubs are playing a double-header as a result of Saturday night’s postponement due to a water main break outside of Coors Field.
