The dread pirate Snell... missed.
14 Ian Snell pitches missed Craig Biggio last night, leaving the Astros with a general lack of baserunners and total lack of runs. Tonight should be a better night for offense with Pirate Tom Gorzelanny mike his major league debut on the mound. If Gorzelanny plunks Biggio tonight he will be the 4th pitcher to do so in his major league debut and the 16th pitcher to make Craig Biggio the target of his first major league hit batter. He'd also be the first pitcher with both a Y and a Z in his name to plunk Biggio. And, he'd become the first pitcher to plunk Craig Biggio on September 20th.
