two homers, but no HBPs

Craig Biggio saw 13 pitches last night during the Astros 7-0 win, and none of them hit him, but the 12th and 13th pitches thrown to him were sent over the fence for home runs. It was Biggio's first 2 homer game on the road since June 30, 2004 against the Cubs at Wrigley. Last nights homers were the 272nd and and 273rd of his career, but he was not hit by the 281st pitch of his career. The Astros, by the way, hadn't won consecutive road games since July 1st and 2nd at Texas.

This afternoon, the Astros will face Clay Hensley. He has never hit Craig Biggio with a pitch, and has only hit 2 batters in his short career. Biggio has been hit by a pitch just once on August 3rd, in 1996 by Shawn Estes of the Giants.

Knowing that the late season call-ups are coming soon, I have a question regarding rookie pitchers.
Has Biggio ever been plunked by a rookie pitcher pitching in his first game?
