A day off after 3 plunks.

Craig Biggio and the Astros will get a well deserved day off after Biggio got hit by 3 pitches and the Astros swept the Rockies.

Francisco Cordova's June 23, 1997 Biggio plunk was the only one on this day in Biggio plunking history.

Baseball Tonight Extra reports the following today:
"Craig Biggio has more multi-hit by pitch games (20) than he has multi-homer games (14) in his career. Biggio, who was hit twice on Wednesday, has been hit by a pitch 266 times in his career, one shy of Don Baylor's modern record. Comparatively speaking, Baylor had 15 multi-HBP games.

I will be at the game tomorrow night and my seats are behind home plate. Would you like a pic of the record-tying/breaking Biggio plunkings that might happen?
