plunk free in Milwaukee

The Astros wrapped up their series in Milwaukee with another close loss yesterday, 4-3. They made yet another late inning attempt at a comeback, but Craig Biggio fouled out to end the game pinch hitting in the top of the 9th, instead of getting hit by a pitch. These things happen - you can't win the game or get hit by a pitch ever. He didn't get hit by a pitch Saturday either, so the Quest for 288 is still waiting for number 284.

Tonight, the Astros will go back to Philadelphia to make up the game that was supposed to by played on the 15th. Adam Eaton will be pitching for the Phillies, but he has never hit Craig Biggio with a pitch. He might want to consider it though, since Biggio has batted .462 against him in 13 at-bats. Eaton has hit two batters so far this season, bringing his career total to 37.

As always love the site and its statistical analysis. Today's question - How many times has Biggio been plunked in make-up games? Has he ever been plunked on a day his team was playing a double-header? Maybe both ends of a twinball? Just curious! Thanks!
