Zunino reaches 15 plunks

Tuesday, September 9th, 2014

Mariners catcher Mike Zunino now has a commanding lead in the American League Most Plunkable Player race, taking his 15th plunk of the year last night. He’s only the 3rd Mariner ever to get hit 15 times in a season, and if he could get hit 4 more times this season, he would tie Jose Guillen for the Mariners single season record (19). He’s also the first player with a last name beginning with Z ever to get hit by 15 pitches in a season, putting him just behind Eric Young and Kevin Youkilis if you take every player with a 15 plunk season and sort them alphabetically.

Dominic Brown broke a streak of 929 plate appearances without an HBP, getting hit by Jared Hughes yesterday.

Overbay breaks 903 PA plunkless streak

Sunday, September 7th, 2014

Lyle Overbay’s streak of not getting hit by pitches since 2011 could not survive yesterday’s Cardinals-Brewers game. Overbay’s last plunk had been June 8 2011 against Zach Duke, and Lance Lynn hit him yesterday in the 4th inning.
The Cardinals and Brewers have hit each other 21 times this year, the most of any pair of opponents in 2014. The Cardinals have hit the Brewers 13 times, and that’s 1 plunk short of the single season record in hitting Brewers – 14 by the 2010 Cubs. The Brewers have hit 8 Cardinals this year, but they trail the Pirates in the Cardinal-plunking standings by 3 plunks.
