Three different 100+ plunk pitchers hit batters

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

HBPs of Note: May 13, 2009

Three of the top 5 pitchers on the active hit batsmen list hit a batter yesterday. Tim Wakefield threw his 171st career plunk, hitting Howie Kendrick in Anaheim. Jamie Moyer threw his 132nd plunk, hitting Juan Pierre in Philadelphia, and Jamey Wright hit Kurt Suzuki in Oakland for his 129th hit batter. Moyer became the oldest pitcher to hit a batter since Charlie Hough hit Lenny Dykstra on July 26, 1994. That was the last of Hough’s 174 career hit batters, and was his final game. Wakefield now has 8 on the season, leading the Majors.

On the other end of the spectrum, Nationals pitcher Shairon Martis hit a batter for the first time in his career. He became the first pitcher born in 1987 to hit a batter in the major leagues. However, Clayton Kershaw was born in 1988 and hit a batter last season, so Martis is not the youngest active pitcher with a plunk. Bryan Augenstein also hit a batter for the first time in his career yesterday, but he was born in 1986.
