another wednesday in the wildcard race
11 pitches were thrown to Craig Biggio by the Reds last night, but none of them hit him as the Astros got a needed win at home. In such a tight wild card race, surely the little things, like getting on base by taking one for the team, will be the key for which ever team comes out on top.
Brandon Claussen pitches today for the visitors. 6 of his 8 career hit batters have been recorded this season, but has never plunked Biggio.
James Baldwin plunked Biggio on August 31, 1997 and Jake Peavy got him on August 31, 2003.
