Shane Victorino ties post-season record with ninth HBP

Oct 13, 2013, 8:37 PM EDT

Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino moved into a tie with Alex Rodriguez for the most post-season HBP’s in the bottom of the first inning of NLCS Game 2. Tigers starter Max Scherzer drilled Victorino in the left shoulder with a 91 MPH fastball, his ninth career in the post-season. The errant pitch put a runner on first base with one out. Scherzer, however, was able to strike out Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz to end the inning.

Victorino was hit twice in Game 4 of the ALDS against the Rays, as well as once each in Game 1 and Game 3. He led the league with 18 HBP’s during the regular season, 15 of them occurring in his last 44 games of the regular season after he became a full-time right-handed hitter.

    As many HBP as hits for the Red Sux

    I think their more remarkable record is going to be most strikeouts in the first two games of a series. Twenty-six and counting, and its only the fifth inning.
