The St. Louis Cardinals are the defending World Series Champions, but when they show up in Houston for tonight's game they'll be just as 0-3 as the Astros. Adam Wainwright is tonight's scheduled starter. Wainwright has made 63 relief appearance for the Cardinals in the last two years, but this will be his first as a starter. He's never plunked Craig Biggio, but he did hit 4 batters last year - Rickie Weeks, Geoff Jenkins, Austin Kearns and Jose Bautista - all of whom had 10 or more HBPs last season. It looks like Wainright is a bit of a band-wagon plunker - just hitting the same guys everyone else is hitting. All four times Wainwright hit batters last season were in the 7th or 8th inning.
Craig Biggio has never been plunked on April 6th.
