VIDEO: Alex Bregman Keeps Getting Plunked, Even When He's Not Batting
To the surprise of nobody, there have been some high-tension moments in Houston Astros games this season. There have already been 10 Astros batters hit by pitches through 16 games, with a few that didn't quite look accidental.
This time, Astros third baseman Alex Bregman got plunked when he wasn't even batting.
Obviously this one wasn't intentional, but that makes it no less entertaining. Trying to throw Bregman out at the plate, San Francisco Giants infielder Donovan Solano caught Bregman in the shoulder, and the ball then ricocheted off his own catchers's face.
Bregman scored on the error, and the Astros eventually expanded their lead to 5-0 that inning.
If only they were playing by kickball rules — that would have been a perfect play by Solano for the second out of the inning.
