Parra ties franchise record for wild pitches against Twins

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Brewers starter Manny Parra has matched a 35-year club record with four wild pitches against the Minnesota Twins.

Parra misfired in the second, the fourth and twice in the sixth inning on Wednesday night to match Ed Sprague's mark set May 14, 1975, at Texas. The left-hander's worst throw came when his toss sailed well over catcher Jonathan Lucroy's head while trying to intentionally walk Delmon Young in the sixth.

Parra entered with just five wild pitches this season, but became the second pitcher in the majors to throw four in a game this year, joining Cleveland's Jake Westbrook, who did it on April 5.
