Ultra-rare occurence in Giants/Cubs game

 

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.)
