281 in the books - could there be more in Milwaukee?

Last night the Astros won their 146th game in which Craig Biggio was hit by a pitch, and moved to 9-6 against the Brewers in Biggio plunk games. It was the 17th time he's been hit by the Brewers, the 12th time in Milwaukee and the 7th at Miller Park. It was the third time the Brewers plunked Biggio on a Thursday, which ties them for the most plunks of Biggio on Thursdays with the Cubs and Rockies - Thursdays, however are the least plunked day of the week with last night's being only the 25th.
Luke Scott became 31st player to drive in a Craig Biggio run after Biggio got on base with a plunk, but just the 3rd player to do so with a triple.

Tonight Craig Biggio will begin looking for plunk number 282 against starting Brewer Tomo Ohka. Ohka has hit 3 batters this season and 28 in his career, but he has never hit Craig Biggio with a pitch.

Jaime Navarro plunked Biggio on August 18, 1996 for the Cubs, and Jimmy Anderson threw plunk number 193 on August 18, 2001.

You should post a poll on your page asking: Which will happen first ... HBP #288 or Base Hit #3,000?

I hope it happens in the same game.
