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.
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.
