Marlins miss 21 times

Craig Biggio saw 21 pitches last night, but none of them hit him, leaving him stuck - still - at 282 career plunks. But he did pick up two more hits, breaking the Craig Biggio era record for career hits, and the Astros won 4-3.

Tonight the Marlins will send out Sergio Mitre to throw near the Astros. He has never hit Craig Biggio with a pitch, but he's up to 15 hit batters for his career, including one in each of his two starts this year.

Biggio has been hit twice on April 17th, but never in Houston. Paul Wilson hit him on April 17, 1996 at Shea Stadium, and Jimmy Haynes threw plunk #200 on April 17, 2002 at Cinergy Field.
