notes on 266
Today's game was the 20th time Craig Biggio has been hit twice in the same game, and Jason Jennings was the 12th pitcher to hit him twice in the same game. He's just the second pitcher to hit Biggio twice in the same game for the Rockies, but Pedro Astacio did it on two separate occasions.
Today also marked the 6th time he's been plunked 3 or more times in 2 days, including these same two days two years ago - June 21st and 22nd of 2003. On May 7th and 8th of 2000 he was hit twice in 2 consecutive games, his only 4 plunk 2 game span. But, today was the first time he was hit twice in a day game following a night game when he was plunked so it's a reasonable guess that the approximately 17 hours between plunk 264 and 266 was the fastest 3 plunk span in Biggio's career. He has never been hit 3 times in the same game, and he has never been hit in both games of a double header.
Also, between the 7th inning last night and the 3rd inning today he was plunked in 3 consecutive plate appearances. That may be the only time he's ever done that but I can't fully rule out August 2nd and 3rd of 1996 and July 20th and 21st in 1995 just from their box scores.
Don Baylor's 266th HBP came on September 25, 1988, 5 days after his 265th on September 20.
Tommy Tucker's 265th and 266th HBPs came sometime during 1899.
Hughie Jennings 265th and 266th HBPs occured sometime during 1901.
