a dark and stormy night

Last nights game gets wiped from the books (Edit: or not, thanks dm) do to the forces of nature, so the Astros will make it up in a double header tomorrow. Good thing the baseball gods didn't pick that night to deal out any historic Craig Biggio plunks, because then there would be controversy. But then, everyone loves controversy, don't they?
Tonight's starter, weather permitting, is Luke Hudson for the Reds. No pitcher named Luke has ever hit Craig Biggio with a pitch, nor has any player name Han or Chewie.
He's been hit just once on July 1st, ten years ago by John Hope of the Pirates.

Also, there's a good article from the Cincinnati Post today - particularly the first paragraph which was an angle I hadn't seen yet. And, USA Today features sound advice from 5 year old Quinn Biggio. (Although it would force me to find a new hobby).

Actually, according to this morning's AP story, last night's game is officially being recorded as a 7-inning tie, with a makeup game scheduled. They say that the statistics do count, so Backe gets to keep those two RBI's.
