5 straight wins
Major League hit batter leader Dave Bush didn't hit Craig Biggio or any of the other Astros last night, and as a result he allowed the Nationals' Ramon Ortiz to catch him for the season plunk lead. Biggio saw 12 pitches, and while none of them hit him, he did go 2-4 and contribute to the game winning rally in the bottom of the 9th, as the Astros won 1-0.
Doug Davis pitches tonight for the Brewers - he's never hit Craig Biggio but he has hit 4 batters this season. Biggio has been hit twice on the last day of August - in 1997 by James Baldwin, and on August 31, 2003 by Jake Peavy.
