Jose Valverde (age 26!) served up plunk #270 sometime in the middle of the night. Biggio was leading off the 9th inning, making #270 his 87th plunk while leading off the inning. Unfortunately it didn't spark a 9th inning come back rally, and the Astros have lost the the last 2 games Biggio has been hit by a pitch despite their red hot 17-3 streak since that first series after the all-star break.
Velverde became just the 4th pitcher to plunk Biggio while recording a save, joining Barry Jones, Willie Fraser and Danny Graves.
Plunk #270 was also on a 3-1 count - I don't have stats on ball-strike counts for very many plunks, but that is the first 3 ball count he's been plunked on this season anyway.
