Craig Biggio had one hit last night, moving his career total to 2,997, just three away from Roberto Clemente for 26th on the all time hits list. Unfortunately the Astros needed a few more hits, or maybe an HBP, because the Brewers defeated them 11-5. Biggio did not get hit by a pitch.
The Astros are expected to keep Biggio out of the starting lineup today, but he might be available for pinch-hitting duty. Jeff Suppan pitches for the Brewers today - he contributed to Biggio's HBP total on July 5, 2003.
Danny Jackson, Pete Harnisch and Omar Daal have all plunked Biggio on June 27th. Daal did it most recently, in the 2000 season, Harnisch in 1999 and Jackson in 1995.
