Upton takes Dbacks single season record, share of NL lead

Monday, September 26th, 2011

Justin Upton took plunk number 19 on the season when Tim Lincecum hit him in the 1st inning last night. He’s the first Diamondback’s batter ever to take 19 HBPs in a season, breaking the single season record of 18 set by Andy Fox in 1998. Congratulations Justin Upton! Overall that was plunk number 30 of Upton’s career, and the 25th ever thrown by Lincecum. Upton is now, once again, tied with Danny Espinosa for the National League lead in HBPs.

Sean Rodriguez also got hit by a pitch yesterday, extending the single season record of the other expansion team from 1998. He’s the first Ray to get hit 17 times in a season after Brett Cecil hit him yesterday.

BACON race update:
Jacoby Ellsbury – .847
