Top hitting pitchers

As of 8/27/08, here are the majors’ top hitting pitchers (min 25 PA):

Carlos Zambrano, Chi   .365

Brandon Backe, Hou   . 302

Micah Owings, Ari   .288

Braden Looper, Stl   .275

Adam Wainwright, Stl   .267

You can see the full list I saved over at Baseball Reference’s Play Index.

Not only is Zambrano at the top of the list of hitting but his 14 rbis dwarfs second place Brandon Webb’s 7 (which ironically he got with a .138 BA and no HR). 

Zambrano needs a little lovin’ after his rough August. 

Go Cubs!
