memorial day recap, more cardinals today
Craig Biggio had a busy holiday weekend - in Saturday's nearly endless contest against the Pirates he has his first career 5 walk game. That's one short of the Astros records held by Jeff Bagwell.
And yesterday, Craig Biggio got plunked for the 277th time in the 30th ballpark of his major league career, and recorded his 10,000th at-bat. If you haven't done it yet, check out Biggio's career totals on one of the major sports websites, and enjoy the opportunity to calculate his career batting average in your head. To 4 decimal places.
Chris Carpenter will be pitching for the Cardinals today, possibly looking to extend his two year streak of plunking Craig Biggio. Carpenter hit Biggio with a pitch on April 14, 2004 and September 3, 2005.
Late Edit: It appears that the Cardinals may be putting Carpenter on the DL today and calling up Anthony Reyes to pitch tonight. Reyes has yet to plunk anyone in 19 innings of major league work.
Todd Coffey plunked Biggio on May 30, 2005.
