Youkilis gets 69th

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

Seven batters were hit by pitches in yesterday’s baseball action, and three of them were 3rd Basemen, including an 8th inning plunk of Kevin Youkilis by David Price. That was the 69th plunk of Youkilis’ career, and leaves him just 2 HBPs behind Mo Vaughn for the Red Sox team record. Price also hit Carl Crawford in the 1st inning of that game, and that makes Price the first Rays pitcher ever to hit a batter in both the 1st inning and 8th inning of the same game.

Chris Carpenter hit the 79th batter of his career, extending his New Hampshire record plunk total. He hit Kelly Johnsons.

Tim Lincecum hit Juan Uribe with a pitch, making that his 2nd plunk of the 2011 season. His only other plunk this year was also thrown to Juan Uribe.
