another rookie vs Clemens
17 pitches flew toward Craig Biggio last night, but none of them hit him. Carlos Zambrano continued his quest for the non-existent Cy Young award for pitchers on losing teams, pitching 8 shutout innings and recording his 13th win of the season as the Cubs won 3-0.
Tonight the Astros face another of the seemingly endless supply of rookies teams are finding to match up against Clemens. Juan Mateo has faced 34 batters in 2 career games in the majors so far, but hasn't hit any of them. He hit 14 batters in the minor leagues at a rate of about 1 per 24 innings pitched.
Craig Biggio has never been hit by a pitch on August 15th.
