Orlando Palmeiro got plunked in the 6th, and Jason Lane took a home run payback pitch in the 7th last night, but Craig Biggio did not get hit by a pitch, going 1-4 in the loss. Over the 3 game series, Baltimore hit 5 Astros batters while the Astros only plunked one Oriole. The Astros are off today, traveling to their weekend series in Kansas City.
On June 16, 1999 Rudy Seanez of the Braves hit Craig Biggio with a pitch.
Biggio's record chase media tour continued on Washingtonpost.com yesterday with a well done article by Les Carpenter. And, just to counter Carpenter's statement that nobody pays attention to Biggio's approach to 3000 hits, I'll point out that in my book Biggio is just 36 away from 3000 at 2964 (hits + times hit).
