losing, plunkless streaks continue
Craig Biggio hit the ball a few times last night, once safely for hit number 2,973, but he did not get hit by the ball. He scored the Astros only run of the game, but they lost 2-1, extending the losing streak to 9 games.
Tonight, Aaron Harang will get his chance to fulfill his lifelong dream* of plunking Biggio. He's hit 27 other batters in his career to warm up, but he has not yet hit Craig Biggio with a pitch.
Two years ago, Todd Coffey plunked Biggio for the Reds - on May 30, 2005.
*Plunking Biggio is probably not really Aaron Harang's lifelong dream.
