The Washington Nationals once again pitched carefully to Craig Biggio, not giving him anything he could get hit with among the 13 pitches thrown toward him last night. He singled and walked, but the Astros didn't have enough offense to withstand the Nats 4 run 8th inning and fell 5-1.
Tonight's starter for the Nationals will be Tony Armas. Armas his hit 6 batters this season, 1 short of the league lead. He's hit 36 batters in his career, but has never plunked Biggio. I'm sure he's thought about it though.
Kerry Wood hit Craig Biggio with a pitch on May 25, 2002.
