92 plunks for Aramis Ramirez (not in one game)

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

Ronald Belisario hit Aramis Ramirez last night, moving Ramirez a step closer to the 100 plunk club with his 92nd career plunk. That was the 30th this year for the Brewers, putting them back in a tie with the Rays for the major league lead in getting hit by pitches.

Also yesterday, Tommy Hanson threw his 25th career plunk hitting Matt Holliday. Holliday is up to 73 career plunks.

The Rockies hit the Astros in both games of their double-header yesterday, bringing the all time total of plunks recorded in Astros-Rockies games to 150. The Astros have been in the batters box for 97 of those.

Scott Diamond of the Twins hit a batter for the first time as a major leaguer, and that makes him the 44th pitcher born in Ontario to hit a batter.
