Steven Wright Walked Five Batters On Monday; Clayton Kershaw Has Walked Five Batters All Season

It's June 1 and Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw has issued a grand total of five walks. After facing 309 batters (3rd most in MLB). And pitching a major-league leading 86.2 innings. Kerhsaw has recorded 21 strikeouts for every walk he has issued this season.

And, as SB Nation's Grant Brisbee points out, Kerhsaw should have only three walks, or maybe four, on his stat line. But, as you will agree after looking at the four-pitch "walk" he allegedly issued to Hunter Pence on April 9, not five.
