you can't get plunked on the bench

Craig Biggio took the night off last night, so he couldn't add to his 285 career HBPs, but Roy Oswalt and the Astros pulled out a road win without him, 4-1.

Tonight, the Astros will be facing Brett Tomko. Craig Biggio has 43 career plate appearances against Tomko, but has never been plunked by him. 5 pitchers have plunked Biggio after not hitting him the first 43 times they faced each other. Tomko is one of only 7 active pitchers who have thrown over 1500 innings in the National League without hitting Craig Biggio with a pitch.

Biggio has never been hit by a pitch on August 14th.
