PHILADELPHIA —  Catcher Mike Zunino got most of the game off Wednesday, which provided an opportunity to avoid yet another set of bruises. Zunino was hit by a pitch for the 14th time this season in Tuesday’s victory over the Phillies. That leads the league and drew him closer to Jose Guillen’s club-record of 19 set in 2007. “You’ve got to lead in something, right?” Zunino chirped. “I must lead in the ones I can’t get out of the way of.
