239 to go

Brad Ausmus got hit by a pitch again, bringing his total to 49. He just needs 239 more to break Hughie Jennings all time record. It's just a matter of time...
Oh right, Craig Biggio. He didn't get hit.
Brian Moehler is on the mound tonight for Florida. He has only hit 17 batters in his 151 career pitching appearances, but none of those 17 were Craig Biggio. Biggio has been plunked 14 times by pitchers whose last name starts with the letter M, but only twice by pitchers with the same first and last initial as Brian Moehler.
Rick Helling and Steve Woodard plunked Biggio in back to back years on May 10th (1997 and 1998). Helling delivered his plunk on behalf of the Florida Marlins, also today's opponent.
