During Wednesday’s Mets–Brewers game, New York second baseman Luis Guillorme was hit by a pitch, marking the 106th time this season a Mets player was plunked.
Mets center fielder Mark Canha was hit by two pitches earlier in the game, both times by Brewers starter Adrian Houser.
The pitch that hit Guillorme, though, broke the modern MLB era record for most HBPs for a single team in a season.
The ball, thrown by Brewers reliever Jake Cousins, was then tossed to Mets manager Buck Showalter in the dugout. Apparently, Showalter wanted to keep a piece of the team’s history.
