Chris Capuano hadn’t hit a batter since June 23, 2012, and he faced 980 batters without hitting any of them. But then he faced Josh Donaldson yesterday, and hit him with 90.5mph fastball. That was the longest active plunkless streak for a pitcher. But now Yusmeiro Petit‘s 886 batters faced without a plunk are the most (unless Rafael Betancourt comes back, with his 2,576 consecutive batter plunkless streaks).
