Box Score of the Week

Washington Nationals at Milwaukee Brewers - July 15, 2005.

------------------------------------------

As commenter Mr D. noted, this game ended with a walk-off balk. 

With the Brewers batting in the bottom of the 10th inning with the bases loaded and score tied at 3, Nats relief pitcher Mike Stanton came in to face Lyle Overbay. Before even throwing a pitch, Stanton committed a balk, which allowed the winning run to score from third.

Walk-off balk? It also appears from the box score that Stanton never threw a pitch.
