Astros finally beat the White Sox

It took them 13 innings to finally finish them off, but the Astros finally picked up a win against the Chicago White Sox (10-9). Craig Biggio though, despite 7 plate appearance, was not hit by a pitch. Biggio took the day off on Saturday to rest a sore shoulder, but he might have just been trying to make sure his next HBP came not in Chicago at the new Comiskey Park, but in Detroit where he has never been plunked before. Biggio has been plunked in 29 different ballparks but he was missed in his 3 games at the old Tiger Stadium, and in 3 games in their new park.
Zach Minor pitches for the Tigers tonight in just his 5th career start. He has not yet hit a batter in any of his prior 4 Major League games.

10 years and 204 plunks ago, Tim Worrell hit Biggio with a pitch for the Padres on June 26, 1996. The year before that, on June 26, 1995, Biggio was hit by a pitch thrown by Mark Petkovski. The Astros are 2-0 when Biggio gets plunked on June 26th.
