Wait until there is a runner in scoring position (Second or Third base) and bring in a new pitcher. Finish the inning with that pitcher and allow no runs from the runners on base.

Ok, so I'm not sure of the best way to make the guide for this one, so I will just put exactly what I did in my game when I got this achievement (for anyone else who may have trouble as I did).

(I had mine set to 3 inning game, pro difficutly of course, and used the St. Louis Cardinals. I also went through and boosted all their stats up in roster menu beforehand. Also, I was the away team.)
**Ok, here we go,

First inning, I started with Wainwright. Pretty much 3 up 3 down, no one scored, and neither did I.

Second inning, still using Wainwright. Same as first inning. No one hit or scored, and neither did I (although I was trying, lol).

Third inning, Adam Kennedy hit a homerun for my team, and I had 1 run. Then 3 outs ended my batting. Next, I used Wainwright and threw 4 balls twice and walked the first 2 batters. Then, switched pitchers to T. Wellemeyer. Struck out 2 with him, then the third batter got a single in the outfield and they scored 1 run. So I switched pitchers again to J. Isringhausen (thinking my oppurtunity was gone now). Got the last out with him.

Fourth inning, (score tied), 3 up 3 down on both sides. no one scores.

Fifth inning, I got 2 hits and 2 guys on base. Kennedy hits another homerun and now I score 3 runs. (Score, me=4 opponent=1). Then I just bunt out my next 3 batters. Next, I threw 4 balls twice and walked the first 2 batters again(figured I go ahead and try again anyway). I switched pitchers to R. Franklin. I got 2 outs against them with him, and then switched pitchers again. I switched to M. Mulder. As soon as I switched to M. Mulder the achievement popped for me during the game. I struck out the last batter and ended the game. (score was me=4 opponent=1).

**Also, as a side note. I chose to walk my batters when I did with throwing 4 balls outside the plate, because everytime before I intentionally walked them by doing the intentional walk button, but never got the achievo. So, not sure if that made a difference or not, just throwing that out there.

There ya go, That is EXACTLY how I got the achievement. Any questions feel free to comment or PM me.

I was going for the B. Lyon Card (Arizona Diamondbacks). Here is what I did to get the Hold! Achievement.

Played 9 innings on Pro difficulty. Away: Royals (cpu) / Home: Diamondback (me)

I was leading 1-0 and it was the top of the 8th inning with two outs and the Royals batting (warmed up B. Lyon and closer Pena in the 7th inning). I walked two batters with 8 straight balls in the dirt. Then brought in Lyons.

I pitched a strikeout to end the inning. Then I just bunted my way to 3 outs in the bottom of the 8th. I let Lyons continue to pitch in the 9th. First two batters grounded out. As the last batter came up to bat I subbed out Lyons for Pena and the achievement popped.

MAKE SURE you are on PRO difficulty, screw with lineups and pitcher/batter stats if you want an easier time "controlling" the score of the game.
