It also wasn't like Hawkins was retaliating for a HBP the inning prior. He had just given up a three run shot to Soto and threw the next pitch at Soriano. The home plate ump had already given a warning to both benches, so an ejection was basically automatic.
Fielder and Weeks are leading the league in getting plunked. I'd put the disparity between HBP numbers as a combination of the relative inaccuracy of the Cubs pen (Marmol seems to hit a lot of guys, not exactly a great trait for a closer
) and the tendency of Brewers hitters to crowd the plate. http://www.plunkeveryone.com/
