15 innings, no plunks

Jason Bay and Luke Scott got hit by pitches in last night's 8-3 Astros loss, but Craig Biggio didn't. That was only the 2,557th game of Biggio's career in which he didn't get hit by a pitch.

Tonight the Astros will face Matt Morris, who plunked Biggio on September 19, 2003 for the Cardinals. Morris has hit 3 batters since joining the Pirates this year, but he also hit 5 batters with the Giants before that. The Astros starting pitcher is expected to be Troy Patton making his debut in the majors. Craig Biggio has been hit by a pitch 4 times in games in which the Astros starter was making his Major League debut (Scott Elarton, Carlos Hernandez, and twice in Rodrigo Rosario's debut).

Tomorrow, Tony Armas is scheduled to pitch for the Pirates. Armas has hit a total of 40 batters in his career, including 6 this season, but he's never plunked Craig Biggio.

Biggio has never been hit by a pitch on August 25th or 26th.
