Jon Jay put himself back in the lead in the 2014 most plunkable player race, staying in front of a 9th inning JJ Hoover pitch last night, with the bases loaded and the game tied. That plunk won the game for the Cardinals, but more importantly gave Jay 15 plunks on the season to lead the majors. That’s the Cardinals 2nd walkoff plunk this season, making them the only team in the last 50 years to have 2 game winning HBPs in the same season.
AJ Burnett passed Kenny Rogers on the all time plunk list, throwing #127 and #128 of his career. Burnett is now 38th on the all time list for hitting batters. Burnett has hit 12 batters this season,
Mike Zunino took his 14th plunk of the season, extending his lead for the American League most plunkable player award.
