first win at new Busch

Monday Craig Biggio recorded his first HBP in the new Busch Stadium, but Tuesday he recorded his first win. Biggio homered and tied Hank Aaron on the all time doubles list, and the Astros won 6-3. But, nobody got hit by a pitch. There could be more plunking tonight depending on how well St. Louis starter Jeff Suppan is throwing. Suppan threw a pitch that hit Biggio on July 5, 2003 while he was playing for the Pirates. Suppan hit one batter per every 99.5 he faces as a Pirate, which is his second most frequent plunk rate among the teams he's played for. With the Cardinals, he has hit 1 batter per 98.7 he faces.

Carlos Zambrano plunked Biggio at Wrigley field on May 31, 2003.
