One year ago today, the Los Angeles Dodgers won a game on five straight walks.

Perhaps the win of the 2019 MLB season transpired one year ago today. The Los Angeles Dodgers were trailing the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-3 with two outs and zero runners on base in the bottom of the ninth inning, and ended up winning in walk-off fashion without putting a ball in play. That's right, folks, the D-Backs conceded FIVE straight walks en route to the Dodgers impossible dub.

At one point, Greg Holland was one strike away from completing the save and collapsed seemingly out of nowhere. Arizona's closer retired the first two batters, then walked the next four, including Matt Beaty on four pitches to tie things up.

The Diamondbacks then turned the ball over to TJ McFarland, who was brought into the worst jam imaginable, and he did little to overcome the pressure by walking Cody Bellinger to give Los Angeles the undeserved victory.

To call this a meltdown by Arizona's bullpen would be an understatement.
