How do you know this? This is a logical fallacy, Post hoc ergo propter hoc.
Essentially, you're saying that because Pierre was about to steal a base, and the next pitch was bad, that Pierre caused the bad pitch.
Just because A happened before B doesn't mean A caused B. For example, the fuel light went on in my car, then my car ran out of gas. Thus, the fuel light caused my car to run out of gas.
There is no way to prove the effect of the possibility of an SB on a pitcher. That's what us stats people say when this is brought up.
SBs don't help you score runs, though, that's clear.
