Shut-out stats

The Astros have been shut out 15 times this season, 3 short of the Craig Biggio era record of 18 set in 1992. Craig Biggio has played in 12 of this years blankings, and was hit by a pitch in 2 of them. He's been hit by a pitch in 3 shut-outs during the same season only once in his career, in 1997. Overall, he's been hit 12 times during shut-outs, 8 of which have been complete game shut-outs by the opposing pitcher (the other 4 being combined shut-outs). The Astros have been shut out 130 times in games which Craig Biggio played.
Pitchers who have hit Biggio while pitching a complete game shut-out:
Joey Hamilton, Shawn Estes, Pedro Martinez, Francisco Cordova, Kerry Wood (the 20 strikeout game), Mark Brownson, Carlos Zambrano, Cory Lidle.
Contradictions aside, Biggio has never been hit during a no hitter.

The Astros average 4.53 runs per game when Biggio plays and does not get hit by a pitch, but 5.40 runs when he gets hit. When he gets hit twice, they average 8.35 runs, and 5.14 when he gets hit just once.

Your entry on Astros pitchers during plunk games was interesting, and made me think of something somewhat related (sorry if you've already covered it). Have any of Biggio's ex-teammates ever plunked him?
