Teixeira collects 100th postseason HBP in Yankees history

 

Along with being the first HBP in Mark Teixeira's postseason career, and the first HBP recorded by a Yankee in a World Series game against the Phillies since Joe Dimaggio got hit by Jim Konstanty in 1950, Teixeira's 8th inning HBP Thursday night was the 100th postseason plunk in Yankees franchise history.  That's particularly impressive because no other team has been hit by more than 44 pitches in the postseason.

The Yankees have been hit 49 times in the World Series, 26 times in the LCS and 25 times in the Division Series.  Of the 100 baserunners they've earned from their plunkings, only 16 of them actually came around to score a run.  They've also been hit 3 times with the bases loaded in the postseason, most recently by Mike Stanley in the '97 ALDS.

The Yankees have won 53 postseason games in which they were plunked at least once and lost 31.  They've won 34 postseason series in which they were plunked at least once, and lost 16.  In series in which they don't get hit by a pitch, they're 11-5. 

The all time leader in plunking Yankees in the postseason is, of course, Pedro Martinez with 4 - although he didn't add to that total when he had the chance Thursday night.  No other pitcher has hit the same team that many times in postseason history.  The Dodgers lead all teams in hitting the Yankees in the postseason, with 16, and the only teams that haven't hit the Yankees in the postseason are the Rays, Blue Jays, Royals, White Sox, Astros, Rockies, Nationals and Breweres.
