The Defense Rests

In Saturday night's Brewers-Cubs game, there were 40 walks plus strikeouts - 20 on each side. Going back to 1970, I can only find five 9-inning games with more than that:

7/10/1997, Philadelphia at Florida - 45
5/4/1975, Houston at San Francisco - 43
4/17/1986, Texas at Milwaukee - 42
9/10/1998, St. Louis at Cincinnati - 41
9/18/1995, Florida at Philadelphia - 41

There were four other games with 40.
