Rickie Weeks Weakened by Plunks?

What partially prevented Rickie Weeks from extending his six-game hitting streak Saturday night? Being hit by yet another pitch, make that two in one game.

“It happens sometimes,” says Weeks.  “You know they try to throw me in and miss and hit me.  I can’t do anything about it.”

Weeks leads all of baseball in plunks with unlucky 13.  Weeks was tied with Prince Fielder prior to Saturday with eleven. Following the drama is becoming ‘fun’ so-to-speak, and there’s no better place to follow plunks throughout baseball than at Plunk Everyone.  So why all the pain and why inflict it on the same two Brewers—coincidence?
