Phillies weekend notes
The Astros lost last night, and nobody hit Craig Biggio with a pitch. This afternoon the Phillies are expected to give Cole Hamels some baseballs to throw at the Astros. Hamels is a rookie and has only hit 2 batters in 112 innings of throwing this season. Biggio has been hit once on September 16th, in 2003 by Chin-hui Tsao.
Tomorrow, Randy Wolf gets another shot at the Astros. He plunked Chris Burke and got a no decision when he faced the Astros earlier this month, and he hit Biggio with a pitch on August 17, 2004. Jason Schmidt hit Biggio with a pitch on September 17, 1997.
