Craig Biggio got hit number 3,000 last night (and 3,001 and 3,002). I was lucky enough to be there. What an awesome night for an awesome player!
Biggio needed three hits for the big milestone when he stepped to the plate for the first time Thursday night at Minute Maid Park. By the time the Astros beat the Rockies on Carlos Lee's 11th-inning grand slam, Biggio had hit Nos. 2,998, 2,999 3,000, 3,001 and 3,002.Absolutely great!
