Phillies swept

Craig Biggio did not get hit by a pitch last night, but the Astros swept the Phillies out of town and now stand just 1 game behind the wild-card leading Nationals. The bad news is that Pedro Martinez pitches tonight for the visiting Mets. Pedro plunked Biggio on May 1, 1997. This year Pedro has only hit 2 batters so far, and only one since this post, so he stands at 117, tied for 4th on the all time hit batsmen list among pitchers who have plunked Biggio.
Calvin Schiraldi hit Biggio with a pitch on July 28, 1990 and Jimmy Anderson hit him 11 years later on July 28, 2001.

You are such a wealth of information.

Here's a potential topic...Biggio was on ESPN.com's front page today in a story (seen here) about his chances of making the Hall of Fame.

But how many already-inducted HoFers have plunked Pigpen?
