Adams allowed two runs on one hit, one walk and three hit batsmen while striking out one over one inning against the Dodgers on Sunday.

The right-hander had trouble finding the plate in the outing, but he had little problem locating Dodgers batters. After starting off his appearance by plunking Will Smith, he surrendered a double, two more hit batsmen and a sacrifice fly to allow two runs to cross the plate on only one hit. The lack of control is nothing new for Adams -- in fact, by hitting three batters Sunday, he tied the live-ball-era single-season record with 23 HBPs in one season. Remarkably, the previous record-holder (Detroit's Howard Ehmke) threw 279.2 innings when he established the record in 1922, while Adams has needed only 48.2 frames to match the dubious record this season.
