stop raining.

More rain in San Francisco prevented any attempts to reach plunk #275 last night, but there is some hope that double header today will actually get to be played. Matt Morris is scheduled to pitch the afternoon game. As you may have heard the last 2 days, Morris plunked Biggio on September 19, 2003.
The night game will be pitched by Matt Cain. This will be Cain's 9th career appearance, and he has never hit a batter. Cain might be interested to read this post from last year about the career longevity of pitchers who record their first hit batter against Craig Biggio.
Also, check here for information on Craig Biggio's plunk history in double headers.

Darryl Kile and Braden Looper have each hit Craig Biggio with a pitch on April 13th. Darryl Kile got him in 2002 for the Cardinals, and Looper delivered a badly swollen forearm last year for the Mets on this date.

Damn, with all this rain it feels like off-season again. Plunk or no plunk, I need my astros fix...
