Weekend at RFK
I'm sure the Nationals pitchers probably wanted to hit someone last night while they were giving up 14 runs, but they didn't take their frustrations out on any of the Houston batters. Tony Armas Jr. brings his 27 career plunks to the mound today, but he has never hit Craig Biggio with a pitch.
Steve Cooke hit Biggio with a pitch on July 23, 1994, and Jamey Wright did so on July 23, 2002.
Sunday John Patterson makes his first start against the Astros. He's hit 13 batters not named Craig Biggio. Willie Blair plunked Biggio on July 24, 1996, and Frank Castillo it him on July 24, 1993.
