these aren't the Twins coors light was talking about

The Houston Astros became the victims of the Twins 8th straight victory last night, losing 6-5 in the 10th inning in a game without a single hit batter. Tonight they'll try again against Twins starter Carlos Silva, who has never hit Craig Biggio with a pitch. Silva has hit 23 batters in his career, including 3 this season and 12 during his 2 years with the Phillies, but none of those 23 have been thrown at the Astros.

Craig Biggio has been plunked 5 times on June 21st, starting in 1998 when Pete Harnisch of the Reds drilled him. On June 21, 2000, Carlos Perez of the Dodgers hit Biggio with a pitch. On June 21, 2003 while facing the Rangers, Biggio got hit my Ismael Valdes in the 4th inning and Erasmo Ramirez in the 8th inning. And, last year on June 21, 2005 Biggio was hit by Jamey Wright of the Rockies.
