League record book scoffs at 18 total walks

Wednesday's combined 18 walks -- if you're curious -- was well short of the Southern League record. The Biscuits and Smokies each issued nine free passes in Tennessee's 3-2 win.

That 18 total was a long way from the 26 handed out -- 13 by each team -- on Aug. 6, 1998, in a game between the Huntsville Stars and Greenville Braves.

Also, if you're curious, the teams combined to throw 343 pitches, 193 for strikes.
