weekend with Cards notes
Craig Biggio stayed out of the way of 11 pitches last night, but only 2 were outside the strikezone. We can only hope that today and tomorrow the Cardinals pitchers will stop pitching around him and throw him something he can get hit by.
Biggio hasn't been plunked on June 4th since 1993 when Frank Tanana got him. That was also Biggio's first June 4th plunking. St. Louis starter Jason Marquis has never hit him with a pitch.
Scheduled opposing starter Mark Mulder has never plunked Biggio.
Willis Roberts is the only pitcher who has hit Biggio on June 5th, doing so in 2003 in an interleague game with Baltimore.
