run support

Andy Pettitte could have used a little more run support last night, and while Craig Biggio failed to score in that game, perhaps it's reasonable for him to expect others to score a few runs. There have been 43 games in Astros history in which Craig Biggio scored the only Astros runs. Remarkably, this season they are 2-0 when Biggio scores all their runs. Before this year they had 1 win and 40 losses in such games. Saturday's 3-0 win over the Pirates was the only time Biggio ever scored 3 runs in a game in which he was the only Astro to score.

In these 43 games, Craig Biggio has only been hit by a pitch 3 times, and in only 1 of them, May 25, 2002 against Kerry Wood and the Cubs, did his plunk lead to the only Astros run of the game.
