Rangers win first half of Silver Boot

The Texas Rangers took 2 out of 3 games over the weekend, taking the lead in the race for the Silver Boot, but they also became the 9th team this season to fail to plunk Biggio. Tonight, the Astros travel to AT&T Park in San Francisco to face the Giants again, to give them another chance to plunk Biggio. Noah Lowry will face them tonight, after losing last week despite giving up just 2 runs. Noah has not yet plunked Biggio once, so if he's planning to plunk 2 of every batter, he'll need to hurry up. The Giants ballpark is the only one in the National League in which Biggio has never been plunked, so this series could be his last chance.

Craig Biggio recorded his 20th career plunk in San Diego on May 21, 1993 against Tim Scott.

Also, reader Jordan from Denton, Texas sent this picture along from the Minute Maid Park scoreboard - but I'm sure everyone at the park knew that whoever is in charge of scoreboard trivia meant to write "active leader".
