Pirates wisely avoiding the carribean
Craig Biggio had an early exit last night after the Astros jumped out to a big lead, and didn't get hit by any pitches. But the Astros won and the magic number is down to 9. Zach Duke (akea Zach-beard the Pirate) pitches tonight's final game against Pittsburgh. The rookie Duke has plunked 2 batters in his career, and none since he hit Morgan Ensberg on August 12.
Gabe White hit Craig Biggio with a pitch on September 22, 1997.
