plunks as the offensive sparkplug

In an average Astros game in which Craig Biggio gets hit by a pitch, the Astros score 3.5 runs after the plunking - but when Biggio scores after reaching base on the plunk, the average goes up to 5.2 runs. The most they have scored in a game after Biggio was plunked is 18 runs, but they've never scored more than 13 runs after Biggio got hit and didn't score a run. The Astros have a record of 27 wins and 64 losses in games when they score 1 run or less after Biggio is plunked, and a record of 113-37 when they score 3 or more runs after the plunk. They're 18-18 when they score 2 runs after the plunking. After 46 of the 277 plate appearance during which Biggio was plunked, the Astros did not score another run in the game.
