Why Did Kentucky Pitch to Katz?

I had trouble understanding this one. Two outs with a base open and you pitch to the hottest hitter in the country. Making decisions like that, will lose you games. Regardless, I loved it! and I'm sure everyone saw it coming.

Kentucky still had 3 more innings to scratch across 4 runs.

McDonald said on tv telecast that pitcher made a mistake and no way was ball supposed to be over plate.

That it may have been, but why even mess around. Should have just intentionally walked him.

re: Why Did Kentucky Pitch to Katz?
Some coaches hate intentionally walking batters. They would rather throw a few pitches off the strike zone and see if the batter will swing at a bad pitch. He may have intentionally walked him after going 2-0. We put a guy on after a few pitches.

It was an accident. The pitcher missed his 'spot'

Pitching around is harder than intentionally walking a batter. Looked like the pitcher caught too much plate.

I actually thought it was a pretty good pitch. Ball was low and outside and Katz swung knowing that he probably would be intentionally walked if the count got to 2-0.

Decent pitch a little high for the task. The real issue is Katz is on a heater. He could double off a bounced ball at this point.

He missed his spot. Katz went out and yanked it. Most hitters would have grounded out to ss on that pitch. I am glad they were trying to unintentionally walk him
