Bronson Arroyo wins the trophy as having pitched the worst inning in MLB history.
At Rogers Centre in Toronto on June 24, 2008 Bronson Arroyo and the Cincinnati Reds came to the Great White North to play the Toronto Blue Jays.
Arroyo entered the game with a 4-7 record.
Marco Scutaro led off the home half of the first inning with a double, and Joe Inglett followed with a walk.
Alexis Rios singled to left to load them up for Vernon Wells. Arroyo set him down with three straight pitches, for the first out of the inning.
Matt Stairs lined out to left, but deep enough to score Scutaro with the game's first run. Runners are now on first and second with two out and one in.
Third baseman Scott Rolen hit Arroyo's first offering over the center field fence for a three-run HR, making it a 4-0 game with two outs.
Lyle Overbay followed the blast with a double to right field, and Gregg Zaun brought him in with a two-run blast down the right field line. Score is now 6-0 with two outs.
Adam Lind and Scutaro (for the second time) both singled before Inglett ended the inning on a fielder's choice.
Yes, this is another situation where the pitcher overlaps into the next inning without recording a single out.
The Reds scored one in the top of the second making the score 6-1.
In the second inning, Rios hit a laser over the fence making it a 7-1 game. Wells singled and scored on Stairs'double to right, extending the Toronto lead to 8-1.

Gary Majewski relieved Arroyo with nobody out and Rolen on base. He would score the game's 10th run, charged to Arroyo.
His final line for an inning of work is as follows:
IP=1.0, H=11, R=10, ER=10,BB-1, K-1, HR=3, 15 batters and 52 pitches
