The walk-off walk

MLB.com has a writer, Roger Schlueter, who periodically puts out a column with trivia from the previous day's games. For Sunday, Schlueter notes, "the Marlins beat the Phillies, 5-4, in 14 innings when Mike Cameron ended the game with a bases-loaded walk. The last time a contest featured a game-ending walk after so many innings was on June 17, 2006, when Bobby Crosby drew a bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the 17th inning to give the Athletics a 5-4 victory over the Dodgers." The article is lengthy but it did mention something I was unaware of: the formerly weak-hitting Oakland A's are scoring runs at the fourth-highest rate in MLB since the All Star break.
