Giant unplunked streak
The San Francisco Giants haven't hit Craig Biggio with a pitch since May 15, 1999. Since then, Biggio has played 38 unplunked games against the Giants. That is his longest active unplunked streak against a single team, but it's only the 10th longest such streak of his career. The Dodgers played 85 games against Biggio, beginning on June 27, 1988 (his second Major League game), before they plunked him for the first time on May 9, 1994. Atlanta faced Biggio in 59 games before they first hit him on July 27, 1992. The Cincinnati Reds, after delivering Biggio's first HBP on April 22, 1989, faced him in 57 games before hitting him again on August 2, 1992.
The current streak is only the second longest for Biggio against the Giants. He played 48 unplunked games against them between plunks on July 30, 1989 and June 12, 1992.
If Biggio gets plunked by the Giants during the series beginning tonight, ownership of the longest active streak of not plunking Biggio will fall to the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs have played 31 games against Craig Biggio without plunking him since Glendon Rusch hit him on June 1, 2004.
Here are the top 10 consecutive game streaks for teams not hitting Craig Biggio with a pitch.
