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.

Although Jamey Wright disappointed us last night, Jason Jennings shouldn't. The Rockies took a drubbing last night so hopefully Jennings is looking to make Plunk History tonight.
