Twins Baker strikes out 4 in an inning

Quote:
MILWAUKEE (AP)—Minnesota starter Scott Baker struck out four in the third inning of Sunday’s game with the Milwaukee Brewers, becoming the first Twins pitcher to accomplish the feat.

Baker started the inning by striking out Ryan Braun swinging, then got Prince Fielder to strike out, but the ball bounced far away from catcher Mike Redmond.

That allowed Fielder to easily reach first on the wild pitch. Baker then struck out Russell Branyan and Mike Cameron looking on three pitches apiece to end the inning.


So: Because you messed up, you had to face four batters in an inning instead of three. Is that a feat? [By the way, the other guys won.]

Just as it's possible to lose a no-hitter.

I've seen overmatched batters with two strikes on them intentionally swing at and miss wild pitches, breaking for first base even before the ball reaches the catcher.
