More 9th inning runs for LA, no plunks for Biggio
The Dodgers once again failed to hit Craig Biggio with a pitch last night, and they leave town after losing to the Astros 8-5, and only scoring 9 runs in the 9th innings of the three game series. Brad Ausmus got hit by a pitch for the 4th time this season - he is one plunk behind the league leaders and one plunk behind his total for the 2005 season. The Astros are off today, and heading to Cincinnati for a weekend series against the Reds.
Kevin Gryboski will spend another year as the only pitcher who has ever plunked Biggio on April 27th. He threw plunk number 203 on April 27, 2002.
