Pitchers, in general, can do without marathon at-bats. They want to get outs as quickly as possible. But sometimes that just doesn't work.
Indians right-hander Zach McAllister, in the eighth inning Tuesday night at Miller Park, engaged in a 15-pitch at-bat with Milwaukee catcher Manny Pina. There were two out with the bases loaded and the Brewers leading, 3-2, when McAllister replaced Tyler Olson.
