Duda’s 10th plunk proves useful

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

Lucas Duda picked a nice opportunity to get his 10th career plunk in yesterday’s game against the Phillies. Duda’s Mets were down 4-3 in the 7th inning with the bases loaded when Kyle Kendrick left a pitch in the batters box, right where Duda could get hit by it. That was the 2nd time Kendrick has plunked Duda, and the Mets went on to take the lead and win the game.

Joel Hanrahan threw plunk number 10 of his career. He’s thrown 5 in home games and 5 in road games.

Marlon Byrd add a 73rd plunk to his collection, donated by Bruce Chen of the Royals. That was Byrd’s first HBP for the Red Sox.
