starting June with a day off

Craig Biggio was given the day off for most of yesterday's 4-3 11th inning loss to the Cardinals, getting only 1 pinch hit at-bat in the 6th inning. He didn't get hit by a pitch. The Astros have today off, and will resume play at home tomorrow against the Reds.

While he won't be adding to the list today, Craig Biggio has had a knack for round numbered plunks on the first day of June in the past. On June 1, 1996 Andy Benes delivered plunk number 70 to Craig Biggio, and on June 1, 2004 Glendon Rusch threw Biggio's 250th HBP. Jeff Bagwell drove Biggio in after both June 1st plunks, with a double in 1996 and a homer in 2004.
