no progress in Milwaukee
A weekend series in Milwaukee did not help Craig Biggio make progress toward plunk 288, but the Astros have moved on to face the division leading Cardinals in St. Louis tonight. The Cardinals have already plunked Biggio twice this season, and tonight's starter Chris Carpenter has plunked Biggio in each of the last two seasons. He threw plunk number 242 on April 14, 2004 and plunk 272 on September 3, 2005, so maybe he's been waiting to throw plunk number 282 as well.
Today is also the 10th anniversary of Biggio being plunked by Matt Beech. Beech plunked Biggio for the Phillies on September 11, 1996.
