Dodgers in Houston

Craig Biggio didn't add to his 285 career HBPs while in Pittsburgh over the weekend, but the Astros did take 2 out of 3 game against the Pirates, helping to keep themselves out of last place in the NL Central.

But, they'll be returning to Houston to play the Dodgers tonight which means more playing time for Craig Biggio and more chances for him to get hit by pitches. Chad Billingsley will get the first chance for the visitors, but he's only hit 4 batters ever. This will be Billingsley's first time pitching against Houston, so none of the 4 batters he's hit has been Craig Biggio.

Steve Cooke and Jamey Wright both plunked Biggio on July 23rd - Cooke did it in 1994 for plunk 33, and Wright threw number 212 in 2002.

Maybe I'm being selfish, but I'm holding out hope that #288 comes here in San Diego. I have tickets to the entire series, and will be waving my HBP:BGO banner with pride.
