Sam - you can have an inning with six walks and only one run.

Scenario:
1st batter: walks, is picked off.
2nd batter: walks, is caught trying to steal second.
3rd batter: walks
4th batter: walks
5th batter: walks
6th batter: walks, forces in runner.
7th batter: any kind of out.

It's not the walks/lack of runs that makes the two I mentioned impossible; it's that they faced eight and nine batters in their outings. You can't have an inning with eight base runners and only one run.

In that, you are correct.
