Sunday rainy Sunday... Monday under Dome
The Astros were weathered-out on the road yet again yesterday, further delaying Craig Biggio's quest for his 288th plunk... or even his quest for his 283rd plunk. On Saturday, he got one more hit, bringing him to 2,940 hits - just two short of 2,942. (Yes, 2,942 is significant... I'll explain when we get there).
Pigpen and the Astros will look for some better weather in Houston tonight (or make their own), where they're scheduled to face sophomore starter Anibal Sanchez. Sanchez hit 4 batters in his rookie campaign last year, including Chris Burke, but he has not plunked Craig Biggio.
Biggio recorded his first April 16th plunk last season, in Arizona against Juan Cruz.
