Mr. Biggio might have preferred taking a high hard one to what the Astros got in the ninth inning last night. But, baseball moves on quickly. Tonight the Astros travel to Atlanta to face John Thomson and the Braves. Nearly a year ago, on May 7th, 2004, Thomson drilled Craig Biggio. Thomson has hit 24 batters in his career, despite giving up 138 homers.
Biggio has been hit only once on Cinco de Mayo, in 1997 by Mark Leiter in a home win against the Phillies.
