Giant third inning

Craig Biggio moved closer to Hank Aaron last night and Barry Bonds didn't. Biggio hit his 620th double, putting him just 4 behind 9th place Hank Aaron's 624 career doubles, but that was about the only positive note to be found amidst the Astros 10-1 loss in which Biggio did not get hit by a pitch.
While Craig Biggio has never been plunked on May 16th, Jamey Wright has an excellent candidate to be the first. He plunked Biggio on August 24, 1997 for Colorado, September 9, 1997 for Colorado, July 23, 2002 for Milwaukee, and June 21, 2005 for Colorado.

Biggio also moved past Charlie Gehringer for sole possession of 41st place on the all-time hits leader. What are the odds he'll pass Babe Ruth in hits before Bonds passes Ruth in homers?
