unplunked at 5,280 ft
The Astros pounded 18 hits last night on their way to an 11-5 win over the Rockies. Jamey Wright was too busy leaving pitches out over the plate to hit Craig Biggio with any, although he did hit Adam Everett once to stay tied with the World Series Champion Boston Red Sox for the Major League lead in hitting batters.
Mark Clark has held the distinction of being the only pitcher to plunk Biggio on June 28th, since he did so in 1996, but that could soon change with Jason Jennings on the mound tonight. Jennings, as I'm sure readers will remember, was responsible for plunks 265 and 266 last Wednesday. Biggio has never taken 3 consecutive plunks from the same pitcher.
