First time I've lost a game this way...

This was a new way for me to lose a game - leading 2-1 in the top of the 9th with two outs and runners at 1st and 3rd, the tying run scored on a passed ball on an uncaught third strike.

After a walk to load the bases, another passed ball on a strikeout allowed the go-ahead run to score, putting my team down 3-2!

After a pitching change, a strikeout finally got me out of the inning (the fourth strikeout of the inning, added to a sacrifice bunt which had been the first out).

There was no comeback in the bottom of the 9th and the final score was 3-2 - definitely the strangest circumstances I have lost a game in so far.

I think I've won on a balk before.

I don't think OOTP does it, but I know teams in real life have lost on wild pitches during an IBB attempt (I have seen a WP in an attempt to hit a batter though, so maybe it's possible).

My guess is that it was very difficult to implement.

I played H2H with Thomamon about a year or so ago. I won!

It can be done with desktop sharing programs and it is quite fun!!

I was discussing this with an OS during a 4+ hour Astros game. The Astros had to travel to being a road series the next game. Around midnight, I said "They should just intentionally walk the bases loaded, then intentionally walk in the winning run to end this game."

Imagine a winning run scoring on an intentional walk. Or imagine a game ending on a walk off intentional walk.

Just won the NL Championship on a walk-off balk. Man, I almost feel bad for the other team.

Of course, the bases were loaded with 1 out, with the second best hitter in the league at the plate, and the best hitter in the league on deck. So I can understand why their pitcher was nervous.

I was trying to decide whether to pinch-hit for my 1.008 OPS hitter with a pitcher, to squeeze bunt, but decided with the infield and outfield in I would just go for it. Kind of anti-climactic.

OS = Official Scorer, I assume, and not Ordinary Seaman or Ordnance Sergeant.

So, I was imagining what would happen to the ump if this ever occurred in real life. I mean, I think a balk would have to be pretty blatant (like faking a throw to first, then quick-pitching) to be called in the 9th inning of a tied playoff game, much less to balk in the winning run in game 7.

Then I wondered if it had ever happened. According to the list a few comments down, here: Walk-off balks » Baseball-Reference Blog » Blog Archive, it hasn't. Just going by the dates, I don't see any walk-off balks in October, and the only two that happened in September don't look like they had playoff implications (I just looked at the teams' records - I didn't go back and check standings from those years).

I think if it was a blatant IBB they'd be accused of throwing the game. Of course you can tell a guy to walk someone without it looking like an IBB.
