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.?
