13 innings end badly

and plunk free. Craig Biggio didn't get hit by a pitch last night, but did watch an equally painful 13th inning walkoff homer by Albert Pujols after the Astros took the lead in the top of the inning. Ouch.
Today's pitcher, Jason Marquis has never hit Craig Biggio with a pitch, and Biggio has never been plunked on July 16th, but tomorrow's pitcher, Matt Morris hit him on September 19, 2003. And, Bob Tewksbury, Willie Banks and Kirk Rueter have all plunked Biggio on July 17th. Tewksbury in 1993, Banks in 1995 and Rueter in 1998.
