two more in Milwaukee

Craig Biggio saw 10 pitches last night, but he didn't get hit by any of them. Each of his 4 plate appearances ended in a ground out to the left side, and the game ended on a Prince Fielder walk off single.

Dave Bush pitches for the cheeselanders tonight having already hit 15 batters this season. He is 1 plunk behind Dontrelle Willis for the league lead, so he won't want to miss an opportunity to make a strong challenge for the 2006 plunking title with so little time left in the season. Bush has never plunked Craig Biggio, and Biggio has never been hit by a pitch on August 19th.

Tomorrow, the Brewers will send Doug Davis to the mound. He's hit 4 batters this season, and 25 for his career, but none of them were Craig Biggio. On August 20, 1998 Scott Karl hit Biggio with a pitch at Milwaukee's County Stadium, and Kyle Farnsworth plunked Biggio in Houston on August 20, 2002.
