independence day

Craig Biggio went unbruised for the weekend, having taken Sunday off, and getting only 1 pinch hit at bat in the second game on Saturday. The Astros return to Houston today to take on the visiting Padres and Brian Lawrence. Lawrence, today's starter, has never hit Craig Biggio with a pitch, but has hit 39 of the 3,564 batters he's faced.
Craig Biggio has been hit 3 times on July 4th. Bob Ojeda provided Biggio's third career HBP on July 4, 1989, and Brian Anderson hit him twice in a game on July 4, 1998.

The Houston Chronicle had a good article today, and listed a couple of stats I hadn't been able to get at - 7 plunks with the bases loaded and 86 leading off an inning.
