many hits, no plunks
There weren't many pitches that didn't hit a bat in last night's 13-12 Houston win, so Craig Biggio didn't find time between his home run, two singles, 3 RBI, and 2 runs scored to be hit by a pitch. Tonight, the Brewers will send Chris Capuano to the hill, hoping to avoid a sweep and become part of history by adding once again to Craig Biggio's hit by pitch total. Capuano previously contributed plunk number 251 on June 12, 2004.
The Brewers are the only team to have hit Craig Biggio with a pitch on April 19th. Todd Ritchie threw plunk 217 on April 19, 2003.
