So I'm watching the Giants put up a 9-spot in the second inning against the Cubs (fcuk you very much, Ryan Dempster) -- it all started off innocently enough with Jose Guillen getting hit by a pitch. The Giants then bat around, and when Guillen comes up a second time, he is hit again. From what I can tell, this is only the fifth time in baseball history that the same batter has been hit by a pitch twice in the same inning:
Small geeky silver lining in an otherwise craptastic inning.
(Side note: Juan Uribe, following Guillen in the lineup, homered in each of his two at-bats in the inning, including a grand slam. That's something that I think has only happened about 50 times. All in all, quite the inning for rare events.)
