unplunked games

To answer DM's question, here's a look at the longest unplunked game streaks of Craig Biggio's career. His current streak stands at 14, he's had streaks of 15 or more unplunked games 41 times, not including the 59 games he played before getting hit by a pitch the first time. Between September 1, 1989 when John Costello* plunked Biggio and July 22, 1990 when he was hit by Mark Gardner, Craig Biggio played 115 games, making that the longest unplunked streak of his career. Most recently, between August 17 of last season when Randy Wolf drilled him and April 13th this year when Braden Looper gave him a widely reported and nasty looking bruise, Biggio played 48 games - his sixth longest streak.

*I'd like to think there was a "who's on first" joke that went along with this plunk with Biggio saying "me", but it probably didn't happen.
