Daisuke wild

TOKYO — After Daisuke Matsuzaka gave up that homer to Mark Ellis, he has been having a bit of trouble. Matsuzaka walked the next batter, Daric Barton, then hit Jack Cust on the ankle on a 2-2 pitch.

He threw a wild pitch that moved both batters up a base, leaving men on second and third for Emil Brown, who also walked.

That leaves the bases loaded with Bobby Crosby up — and one out.
