284!!!

On the elbow with no elbow pad! 5th inning by Josh Fogg. Looks like the record may be chasing Biggio.


And the 99th run after a plunk for Biggio (although you may see Elias Sports Bureau claim it was number 100 - their total does not seem to agree with what the box scores show on Retrosheet.org)

What a dubious honor.

It doesn't matter-- hopefully they can get a win tonight.

Go 'Stros

Mama said that one looked like it hurt pretty good on the television machine. Now that he done got that other milestone behind him I reckon he has turned his unconscious attention to this more significant and meaningful (and painful) milestone. That is why he put off getting any more plunks until the night after getting the 3,000 hits festivities safely aside. I reckon we have us about three months to see Target climb the ladder and unseat Hughie Jennings. 284!!!

With the 3,000th hit out of the way, Biggio can scootch in and look to get hit by pitches to get the all time HBP record. I think 288 happens, along with double #666, the only other milestone left for Bidge.

Dubious? I have to disagree. A dubious honor is something like most career strikeouts, or most career grounded-into-a-double-play, or something like that. Getting hit by a pitch helps the team. I'd not call that dubious.
