Atlanta, following with past tradition, failed to plunk Craig Biggio again last night. John Smoltz will go tonight. He has hit Biggio once but not since July 27th, 1992. The Braves plunk Biggio about once every 2.28 years.
Biggio has been hit twice on May 6th, by Kerry Wood in 1998 and by Kris Benson last year. The Astros are 1-1 on May 6th when Craig Biggio gets hit by a pitch.
