32 unplunked games in PA
Craig Biggio played his 32nd consecutive unplunked game in Pennsylvania last night, but he did go 2-4. Unfortunately though, Pirates pitcher Paul Maholm only gave up one other hit while pitching a complete game shutout, and the Astros lost 3-0.
Tonight's starter for the Pirates will be Zach Duke, who has never hit Craig Biggio with a pitch, but he did hit Brad Ausmus on April 2nd this year. That was the only batter he's hit this season, but that also means he has now plunked more Astros than any other team's batters. 3 of Duke's 10 career plunks have been thrown at Astros.
If Biggio were to get plunked today, Pennsylvania would be the 4th different state he's been plunked in on April 25th. He was hit in Ohio by the Reds on April 25, 1999, plunked twice in Florida on April 25, 2002, and one more time in Colorado on April 25, 2004. Biggio has only been plunked in 4 different states on May 4th (Texas, Illinois, Missouri and New York).
