After a highly improbable 3 game unplunked sweep in Colorado, the Astros head to San Francisco to make up that rain out from April 11th. Noah Lowry, coming off a stint on the DL, will be making the start for the Giants. Lowry has never hit Craig Biggio with a pitch, but he has hit 8 batters in 54 career appearance. The Giants, by the way, rank 11th among active franchises in average height. The average height of everyone who has ever played for the so called Giants is 6 feet 1.25 inches. They may be slightly above average, but they're hardly Giants. The average height of pitchers who have hit Craig Biggio with a pitch is 6 feet 2.31 inches.

Rick Reed plunked Biggio on May 8, 1997 for the Mets, and Pedro Astacio threw two plunks on May 8, 2000.
