Statistics show Brewers clearly has a problem with Willson Contreras

Willson Contreras has been hit by a pitch 58 times in his career, most of them by the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Chicago Cubs opened their 2022 season against rival Milwaukee Brewers. In the contest, Cubs catcher Willson Contreras stepped into the batter’s box at the bottom of the seventh inning and was hit by a pitch from Jake Cousins. Contreras was obviously not pleased as he had an argument with the home plate umpire.

For those Cubs fans who think Contreras is always flattened by the Brewers, check out this stat from Marquee Sports Network’s Taylor McGregor.

Contreras was hit by a pitch 58 times in his career. 14 of those came from the Brewers.

Statistics show that Contreras was hit the hardest by a Brewers pitch in his career

MLB Network’s Jon Morosi tweeted during the game that Contreras was knocked down by Milwaukee four times in 2021 and four times in the shortened 2020 season.

Behind the Brewers on the hit-by-pitch list are the St. Louis Cardinals (7), Cincinnati Reds (6), and Pittsburgh Pirates (6).

As Contreras went down, the Cubs capitalized when Ian Happ hit a double into midfield, allowing Clint Frazier and the catcher to score and give Chicago a 5-3 lead. While the Brewers reduced their deficit to one run at the bottom of eighth through a sacrificial fly from Lorenzo Cain, Chicago held on to a 5-4 win.

Contreras were unsuccessful in the first game of the 2022 season.

Cubs fans will be wondering if the number of hits after pitch will increase in the remaining three games of this inaugural series.
