Wilson Ramos Drew A Five Pitch Walk (Video)

In case you missed this in Major League Baseball yesterday, Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos drew a five pitch walk.

Here’s how it went down (courtesy of Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post):

Leading off the sixth inning of the Nationals’ 9-2 win, Ramos took a ball on a 2-2 pitch. Home plate umpire Scott Barry, according to Ramos, declared the count 3-2. Rangers catcher Chris Gimenez turned and asked, “Isn’t it 2-2?”

“Yeah, Barry replied. “2-2.”
“It’s not 3-2?” Ramos asked Barry.

“No, it’s 2-2,” Barry said.

Ramos shrugged and went back to the at-bat.

“I said in my mind, ‘That’s three balls,’ ” Ramos said. “That’s okay. Five balls. I’ll take it.”
