Utley ties franchise record

 

I don't know if they mentioned it in the broadcast of yesterdays game, but Chase Utley's 5th inning HBP moved him into a tie with Mike Lieberthal for the Phillies career HBP record, with 88.  Lieberthal took the Phillies franchise lead on July 19, 2005, passing Ed Delahanty, who had held the record since 1897.  Utley's on pace for 35 HBPs this season, at the moment, so if he can keep up that pace he'll have 87 HBPs in the span of three seasons, which would be in the league of the best three year totals posted by either Don Baylor or Craig Biggio.

Since 2003, Utley has accounted for slightly over 20% of the Phillies HBP production, and he's received 40.5% of Phillies HBPs since the beginning of 2008.

And, he's the all time HBP leader among players whose last name starts with U.
