Remember that time Shawn Tolleson was put in a 1-0 game in Arizona and attempted not to pour gasoline all over the mound? Well, perhaps he shat the bed for a reason.
Tolleson was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Monday and Josh Wall was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque.
Tolleson came in and promptly walked two batters, both of which allowed runs to score -- and both charged to Clayton Kershaw.
