Cody Ross forearm

Giants’ postseason darling Cody Ross told Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle that he is still dealing with pain after being drilled in the right forearm by Joe Blanton in Wednesday’s Game 4 win over the Phillies.

The bone was so bruised by the plunking that Ross required X-rays, but the injury wasn’t enough to keep him out of Game 5′s lineup against Roy Halladay. He went 1-for-4 with an RBI double and three strikeouts in Thursday’s loss.

“Nothing is going to keep me out, but it’s swelled up pretty good and it’s bruised up, but it’s not broke,” Ross said. “I’m definitely going to play. I’m going to fight through it.”

Ross is batting .333 (10-for-30) with four home runs and eight RBI during the postseason.

    Well maybe if your pitchers weren’t plunking people left and right, you wouldn’t get plunked either. Tit for Tat dude. Suck it up. Hamels was head hunted trying to bunt. Ruiz was hit 2 times I think. And Polanco is constantly getting chin music. Oh Well. I hope his other arm gets hit tonight.

      Chooch has been hit three times, Victorino (didja know he’s Hawaiian?), Werth, Polanco have all been hit once. Somewhat surprisingly, Plunkmeister Utley hasn’t been hit yet.
