Rodriguez plunked for 145th time
HBPs of Note: June 13, 2009
Alex Rodriguez got hit by a pitch yesterday, bringing his career total to 145. He's in 20th place on the all time list, with Chet Lemon the next player ahead of him at 151.
Bronson Arroyo hit a batter for the Reds yesterday, bringing his career total to 72. If he'd done all of those with the Reds he'd have their franchise record, but he's only hit 29 since moving to Cincinnati. That puts him tied for 27th on the Reds career list, but he's second to Aaron Harang among active Reds pitchers.
Roy Oswalt threw the 61st hit batter of his career, which leaves him in second place on the Astros all time list, 11 plunks behind the late Darryle Kile.
Ryan Garko got plunked for the 49th time in his career, and that leaves him 1 plunk behind Casey Blake for 6th place on the Indians career plunked list. That was his 7th of the season, which ranks tied for 5th this year, but he's still 6 HBPs behind his teammate, Kelly Shoppach.
