14 runs, and a day off.

The Astros get a day of today after a 14-4 blowout win on Sunday. Baseballs hit Chris Burke, Willy Tavares, and Braves pitcher Horacio Ramirez had a lined drive glance off his head, but nothing hit Craig Biggio. He did go 3-4 though.
So, there won't be a chance to record plunk #278 today, but we can always enjoy the past history of Craig Biggio being hit by pitches on June 12th. Michael Jackson threw plunk #12 on June 12, 1992, and Greg Maddux threw Biggio's 32nd plunk on June 12, 1994. On June 12, 2003, David Wells threw an interleague plunk for the Yankees, and on June 12, 2004, Chris Capuano hit Biggio with a pitch for Milwaukee.
The Astros are 0-4 on June 12th when Craig Biggio gets hit by a pitch, so perhaps today is a good day for a day off.
