monday streak to continue
Craig Biggio was hit by no pitches over the weekend in Arizona, but the Astros return to Houston to face the Pittsburgh Pirates... tomorrow. Today the Astros will spend their 5th consecutive Monday doing whatever it is that baseball players do on days when they don't have a major league game. For some, that might include quiet reflection on their 2,900 career hits, or maybe looking ahead thinking about those next 100 hits and wondering where they'll be found, or perhaps even developing a plan to come up with those last 8 HBPs needed for the all time record in that category.
Craig Biggio has never been hit by a pitch on August 7th. That streak is expected to continue.
