Kouzmanoff breaks Padres franchise HBP record!



Kevin Kouzmanoff's 3rd inning HBP from Matt Cain was the 36th of his career - making him the first Padre ever to be hit by 36 pitches in his career.  The previous record was 35 by Gene Tenace, from 1977 to 1980.   Kouzmanoff has now been hit 6 times by the Giants, 8 times on Saturdays, twice by Matt Cain, 4 times by pitchers named Matt, 7 times when he scored a run after reaching base on the plunk, 6 times in the 8th inning, 4 times with two outs in the 8th inning, 10 times in May, and 21 times on even numbered days of the month, but he's never been hit by a pitcher born in Pennsylvania.
