unplunked, playoffs closer
The Astros moved their magic number to 2 last night, but none of the ten pitches thrown to Craig Biggio became his 274th career plunk.
Home again, with the Cubs visiting tonight. Glendon Rusch pitches tonight for the visitors. He threw Craig Biggio's 250th plunk on June 1, 2004.
Craig Biggio has been hit twice on September 29th. Andy Larkin hit him on September 29, 1996, and Kerry Wood threw plunk 195 on September 29, 2001. And, one of Biggio's 2 post season plunks occured on September 29, 1998 by Kevin Brown of the World Series bound Padres.
