Rickie Weeks had one of the best days of his 2012 season today, going 4-for-4 with a home run and getting hit by a pitch. It was only the third time all season a Brewer had reached base safely five times in a game, and the first time Ryan Braun wasn't the Brewer:
|Ryan Braun||May 11||Cubs||0-for-2, 4 BB, HBP|
|Ryan Braun||July 13||Pirates||4-for-4, 2 HR, BB|
|Rickie Weeks||July 25||Phillies||4-for-4, HR, HBP|
Weeks' line is interesting for another reason, though: This is only the eighth time in franchise history a player has both collected four hits and been hit by a pitch in the same game. Weeks is now the second player to do it twice:
|Paul Molitor||June 14, 1992||Mariners|
|Fernando Vina||April 16, 1998||Expos|
|Geoff Jenkins||August 20, 2000||Astros|
|Devon White||April 26, 2001||Mets|
|Brady Clark||June 9, 2004||Angels|
|Brady Clark||August 4, 2005||Mets|
|Rickie Weeks||August 15, 2010||Rockies|
Weeks and Devon White are now the only players to have four hits, an HBP and a homer in the same game.
Amazingly, both of the Rickie Weeks games above were losses. The rest were all wins.
