Texas weekend roundup
The Astros scored 1 run last night, which was 1 more than they scored in there last 2 games, but Texas scored 3 and didn't even hit Craig Biggio with a pitch. For the first time since 1990, Biggio went through an entire June without getting plunked. The Astros will be trying again to generate some more offense, possibly getting on base via the plunk, this afternoon against Ranger's starter John Wasdin. Wasdin has hit 2 Braves, 2 Orioles, 4 Angels, 4 Red Sox batters, 1 White Sox batter, 1 Dodger, 1 Twin, 1 National, 3 A's batters, 1 Philly, 1 Padre, 3 Mariners, and 1 Blue Jay in his career but he has never plunked any of the Houston Astros.
John Hope of the Astros plunked Biggio on July 1, 1995.
Tomorrow, July 2nd, Kevin Millwood will be throwing against the Astros. He's hit 38 batters in his career, including Lance Berkman on May 20th this year, but he has never hit Craig Biggio or any other Astro with a pitch. Biggio has never been plunked on July 2nd.
