weekend with Dodgers

Brad Ausmus got hit by a pitch last night, and Craig Biggio had two sacrifice hits, but instead of sacrificing his body for the 269th time to get on base, he was sacrificing an out to move runners over.
The Dodgers remain among the league leaders in getting hit by pitches, so they're still not dodging very much better than when I mentioned it earlier in the year. They do appear to have fallen off the record pace though.
Saturday's scheduled starter for the Dodgers is Jeff Weaver, who has never plunked Biggio. Craig Biggio has been hit once on July 9th, by Jay Witasick in 1999.

Sunday Odalis Perez has a chance to become the third Perez to have hit Craig Biggio with a pitch. As I mentioned recently, Biggio has never been hit by three different pitchers with the same last name. No pitcher has ever plunked Biggio on July 10th.
