Final game at Turner
The Braves scored 12 runs for the 2nd consecutive game, but the Astros score one less than yesterday, leaving them further from victory, losing 12-3. Craig Biggio only had one pinch-hit at-bat, but he didn't get hit by a pitch.
Tonight will be Craig Biggio's final game in Atlanta, thought he'll play the Braves three more times in Houston later on this season. He probably won't be starting the game, but the Braves are sending Jo-Jo Reyes to the mound, and he's never plunked anyone anyway. Reyes has only pitched 18.2 major league innings though, so maybe he's just getting ready to start hitting batters now.
Jose Rijo threw plunk number 15 on August 2, 1992, and Mark Gardner plunked Biggio twice on August 2, 1996.
In the news, the plunk chase has FINALLY been picked up by the true main stream media.
