home/road splits

Craig Biggio has been hit by a pitch 22 times against the Pirates. That puts the Pirates 3rd behind the Rockies and Cardinals in total Biggio plunking. 14 of those 22 plunks came at home for Biggio, with just 8 on the road, meaning 63.6% of his HBPs against the Pirates have come at home. Only 2 other teams have a greater bias toward hitting Biggio in Houston rather than on the road, not including the two teams who have only hit Biggio in Houston. 78.9% of #7's plunks versus the Giants have come at Houston, and 73.3% of his plunkings by the Expos/Nationals have been home plunks. On the other end of the scale, the Brewers have only delivered 31.3% of there plunkings to Biggio at his home address in Houston, and only 36.8% of his HBPs against the Cubs have been in home games.
The Royals, Yankees, White Sox, Oakland and Texas have only hit Biggio with a pitch at there own parks, while the Twins and Indians have only struck Biggio in Houston, which leaves Baltimore as the only American League team to have delivered a home and a road plunk.

As always...a fascinating post!

Some people are talking about Biggio's teammate and his homer streak. We here are more interested in the records for consecutive games getting plunked, both for Biggio and for the Major League?

Also, what is the record for a pitcher recording at least 1 plunk in consecutive appearances?

(I'm sure there's better ways to phrase that, but it's not coming to mind right now)

Biggio has been hit in 3 consecutive games 3 different times (4/29/97-5/1/97, 8/30/97-9/1/97 and 6/20/98-6/22/98). I don't think 3 consecutive games is the record though, but historical streak records are tough to come by for anything other than hits and homers. Jose Guillen also had a 3 game plunk streak earlier this season. Consecutive pitching appearances with a hit batter is equally troublesome, but again I'll keep an eye out for it.
