dueling bullpens

Brad Ausmus got hit by a pitch last night, leaving him just 233 plunks short of tying the all time record set by Hughie Jennings, but Craig Biggio went plunkless in last night's battle between the Houston and Milwaukee bullpens to see who could give up the most runs. Chad Qualls gave up 3 runs in the top of the 7th, but Matt Wise came right back with 5 runs allowed in the bottom of the 7th. Qualls hit Chad Moeller with a pitch, but Wise, apparently trying to give up runs as quickly as he could, gave up a double to Craig Biggio instead of hitting him with a pitch.

5 years ago today, on April 18, 2001, Josias Manzanillo hit Craig Biggio with a pitch.

Apparently the rolling blackouts haven't affected the Astros hitting...yet.

It would be nice if you posted the final score in your blog entries for the games. That way, PlunkBiggio would be the only online resource one needs to follow the Astros.

ks, while I think most people would disagree with your assesment that this site only needs game scores to become the only resource you need to follow the Astros, I will try to remember to include them in my posts. In today's post, for example, I mentioned nothing about the Astros giving up 10 runs in the final 3 innings and how that might be cause for concern with the 'stros bullpen - which was generally thought to be a strength on the team.
