last call for Milwaukee to brew up a plunk
Criag Biggio hit his 100th career sacrifice bunt last night, but he didn't sacrifice his body by getting hit by a pitch. However, maybe this was another of those milestones he wanted to cross off his list and now he can go back to chasing Hughie Jennings - sort of like how he got plunked twice in under 10 games after he passed 3000 hits. The Astros lost the game 9-1, but they get one more shot at the Brewers tonight.
Dave Bush will have a chance to become the 214th pitcher to plunk Biggio when he starts for the Brewers tonight. Bush has hit 9 batters this season, which is still 9 behind his total of 18 plunks in 2006. He'll need to do some serious work if he's going to meet his quota for this season.
Matt Morris plunked Biggio on September 19, 2003, but he didn't have the courtesy to do it again when I was at the game last Saturday.
