Craig Biggio got the day off yesterday, and the Astros won their 4th straight game, finishing off the Cubs 3-2. Morgan Ensberg had a pinch plunk in the game.
It's always nice to return home in the midst of a win streak, but even better coming home to face the worst team in baseball. Scott Elarton, at 1-8, pitches for the 17-48 Kansas City Royals tonight against the Astros. Elarton has hit 4 batters this season and is tied for the league lead in home runs allowed with 19. The Royals have given up a major league worst 96 home runs as a team, and there team ERA is 6.08, also dead last in the majors.
Craig Biggio has been hit just once on June 16th - in 1999 by Rudy Seanez.
