1 game closer

The Astros moved closer to first place last night with a 4-2 victory over the Cardinals, but Craig Biggio did not find a pitch to get hit by. Tonight the Cardinals will be giving the ball to Jason Marquis. Marquis has hit 8 batters already this season, including Craig Biggio on May 29th - his last outing against the Astros. Marquis could become the 14th pitcher to plunk Biggio in two different games in the same season.

Jay Witasick of the Padres plunked Biggio on July 7, 2004.

Hopefully Yadier Molina is alright. As valuable a tool as taking a plunk is, it's never good to do it with one's head.
