it's the final off day

The Astros lost two more to the Cardinals on Saturday and Sunday, and Craig Biggio was not awarded first base for getting struck by any pitches, but he did collect his 3,055th hit, which ties him with Ricky Henderson for 20th on the all time list.

Today is the last off-day Craig Biggio's career which at least means the rest of us don't have to spend another day sitting around without an Astros game to watch wondering if Craig Biggio will get hit by a pitch tomorrow. After today. Not that we'd spend an entire day just wondering if Biggio was going to get hit by a pitch the next day... well, not very often anyway. The Astros are back in action tomorrow at Cincinnati, where the Reds have plunked Biggio at least once in 15 consecutive seasons - they'll have three games to extend that streak to 16.

Mark Clark is the only pitcher to plunk Biggio on September 24th, doing so in 1997.
