First off, sorry for the lack of posting this weekend, if you followed my twitter, you would know that I was very busy all weekend. Anyways, back to baseball, Daniel Murphy walked today, I know amazing right? Actually it was weird because he walked on ball 3. After a pick off was thrown away, Murphy fouled off one 2-2 pitch and then took ball 3 and promptly flipped his bat into the dugout and walked to first base. He thought it was ball 4 and apparently so did the Astros’ Manager and all the umpires. It was the first time I’d seen it happen, but with a little research I learned it did happen more than once. Former Red Sox player Coco Crisp walked on ball 3 against the Orioles. This walk was more significant however because on the very next pitch Justin Turner blasted a 3-run homer into left to add to the lead. This might have been the strangest play this year.
