I'm sure the answer you're thinking of is much better, or at least I hope so.
Actually, and I might be wrong (as I often am), but let's say he goes to his mouth twice (ball one, ball two). Then the manager pulls him for being injured, or just being an idiot. A new pitcher comes in and walks the guy, but the walk is charged to the starting pitcher. Then, the runner scores, and the run is charged to the starter.
