There are now 7 players in who have been hit 50 times for the Brewers, unless you want to split Rickie Weeks into two players who have been hit 60 times each. Then it would be 8. Ryan Braun achieved his 50th career plunk last night, getting hit by a 91mph 1st inning pitch from Homer Bailey. That was Braun’s 28th at Miller Park and the 2,078th in Brewers history.
Twins shortstop Eduardo Nunez took and HBP from former Twins closer Joe Nathan in the 9th inning of the Twins-Tigers game. That was Nunez’s first plunk for the Twins, but it was the 4500th plunk in Twins franchise history.
