"Swallows" indeed!

Did he intentionally hit him to walk him rather than risk having him score a double or triple?

If you wanted to intentionally walk someone, you'd just pitch way outside where he couldn't hit it anyway. If you wanted to hit someone intentionally, you'd rarely aim a fastball up by his head. It looks like he was trying to throw low on the inside and the ball slipped out of his hand.

I asked because it looked like the dude originally WAS going to storm the pitcher's mound. I was thinking he'd do that if he thought the pitcher had hit him on purpose.

Yeah, if someone intentionally threw at a batter's head, he's pretty likely to rush the mound, and even if it's an accident, he's sure to take offense. In this case I think Batista took an extra wide turn to give the pitcher a scare so he'd be a little more careful next time.

Seemed effective.

Also, I know American baseball fans/managers/owners don't consider violent outbursts anything of note, but based on what little I know of Japanese culture, it seems like this sort of thing would be frowned upon and more harshly dealt with?
