Craig Biggio hit his third triple in the last 5 games last night, moving him into a tie for for 569th place on the all time triples list. Biggio has now hit as many triples in the past 5 games as he did in the previous 4 years. It may be too late to suddenly decide to go for that record - Sam Crawford's 309 in that category is a long way off. Biggio also scored all of the Astros runs in last night's game, for the 48th time in his career, and since the Reds scored 11 runs and Biggio only had 2, that moved the Astros all time record in games in which Craig Biggio scores all the Astros runs to 3 wins and 45 losses.
But most importantly, Biggio did not get hit by any pitches. He'll try again tonight against Reds starter Kyle Lohse. Lohse has never plunked Biggio, but he has hit 44 other batters. He hasn't hit anyone in his last 17 games, since being traded to Cincinnati from Minnesota last season. Lohse has also never hit a batter on May 2nd, but Biggio has been hit by Jim Bullinger and Cory Lidle on this date. Bullinger plunked Biggio on May 2, 1995 for the Cubs, but Lidle plunked Biggio on May 2, 2004 for the Reds.
