time for some plunkenbräu?

The Milwaukee Brewers visit Houston tonight, bringing with them Dave Bush, who will be throwing baseballs at people - mostly Brewers catcher Johnny Estrada, but some of Bush's pitches may veer toward a batter once in a while. Bush has never plunked Craig Biggio, but he has hit 44 batters in his career. Bush hit 18 batters last year, so he's probably going to be looking to pick up his pace since he's only hit 7 batters this year. He's probably got some contract incentives to reach.

Craig Biggio has never been hit by a team other than the Brewers on August 10th - but he's only been plunked once. Brewer Bill Pulsipher threw Biggio's 17th career leadoff plunk, and his 139th overall, on August 10, 1998.
