Kouzmanoff tied franchise record Wednesday


I just thought I'd point out that Kevin Kouzmanoff tied the Padres career record for HBPs when Manny Acosta hit him in the 8th inning on Wednesday.  He's now tied with Gene Tenace at 35.  Kouzmanoff also became the first Padre ever to have three seasons with 10 or more HBPs, and you probably remember that he broke the single season franchise record last year with 15. 

If you're reading this and saying "Really? The Padres plunk record is only 35?  Don Baylor got hit that many times in 1986."  you're right.  The Padres are tied with the Rays for the lowest franchise plunk record among current MLB teams.  Along with the Padres and Rays, the Mets are the only other team which hasn't had at least one player take 50 plunks for them.
