Reed Johnson gets 105th, Randy Wolf hits 3 Cardinals

Reed Johnson took a pinch-hit plunking from Reds pitcher Sam LeCure yesterday, moving him up the HBP charts to 64th place, tied with Mark Grudzielanek and Dan Brouthers. They’ve all been hit by 105 pitches.

Meanwhile in St. Louis, Randy Wolf hit three Cardinals batters – Ryan Theriot, Tyler Greene, and Daniel Descalso. He’s the first Brewer to plunk three batters since Dave Bush did that on April 28, 2009. No Brewer had previously thrown a 3 plunk game against the Cardinals, and Wolf had the misfortune of being the first pitcher in Brewers history to hit three batters, and have all three of those base runners score a run. Those were Wolf’s 84th, 85th, and 86th career plunks, and the last one was the 75th plunk ever thrown by a Brewers pitcher to a Cardinals batter. The Cardinals have hit the Brewers 91 times, but they didn’t add to that number yesterday.
