Joe Smith, in the 12th inning, with a baseball.
Biggio didn't score after the plunk, and the Astros lost 5-3 in 17 innings, but Biggio has 285 career plunks.
Smith is now the 7th pitcher to plunk Biggio in extra innings, and the 4th extra inning plunked with a 3 letter first name - the other three were all named Tim. The average length of first names of pitchers who have plunked Biggio in extra innings is 3.6 letters.
Plunk 285 was Biggio's first extra-innings plunk at Minute Maid Park. He had only one previous extra-innings HBP at home, and that was in 1993.
Joe Smith was the 213th pitcher to plunk Biggio, but the first with the last name Smith - even though more people named Smith have pitched in the Major Leagues than any other last name. Through last season, 64 Smiths had pitched in the Majors, but none plunked Biggio until last night. That leaves Johnson as the last name with the most pitchers in major league history, but without one who plunked Biggio.
Smith is also the first pitcher born in 1984 to hit Craig Biggio with a pitch, and set a new record among the pitchers who have plunked Biggio by being 18.27 years younger than Biggio. Scott Feldman was previously the youngest member of the 213 member club - he was born in '83, which makes him a little over 17 years younger than Biggio. Biggio was never plunked by anyone more than 12.5 years older than him.
Smith is the 17th 23 year-old to plunk Biggio.
