too many innings
That 6 inning thing they do in the Little League world series must look pretty good to the Astros sometimes. Craig Biggio didn't get hit by a pitch last night, and Chad Qualls erased Andy Pettitte's good effort with a 4 run 8th inning as the Astros lost 4-3. Tonight the Reds will send out Kyle Lohse as their starter to throw baseballs toward the Astros. Lohse has hit 44 career batters, but he hasn't hit anyone since the Reds acquired him from the Twins at the trading deadline. He has never faced Craig Biggio.
Biggio had never been hit by a pitch on August 22nd until last season when Chris Hammond hit him.
