Guerrero approaches 100

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

In last night’s HBP action Vladimir Guerrero got his 97th career HBP on a throw from Felix Hernandez; John Lacky threw his 86th plunk, hitting the never-before plunked David Cooper;, AJ Burnett threw his 92nd hit batter, plunking Jeff Francoeur;and Nathan Adcock threw his first career HBP when he hit Robinson Cano. Evan Longoria got his 20th career HBP on a delivery from Justin Germano, and Scott Linebrink threw number 25 of his career at Ivan Rodriguez. That last one was the 5th HBP this year where both the batter and the pitcher were over 34 years old.
