Biggio anounces retirement in Grand Fashion

This one is for you wifey. Craig Biggio, the newest member of the 3,000-hit club is going to hang them up at the end of the season, he anounced yesterday afternoon. He must like the stage, because last night he had all eyes on him in an emotional ballgame.

The Astros used the 6th inning to pile on 6 runs on the Los Angeles Dodgers and starter Mark Hendrickson/reliever Rudy Seanez. The biggest blow of that inning was Biggio’s grand slam homerun, putting the Astros ahead to stay. Biggio had 2 hits on the night to help Jason Jennings earn his 2nd win of the season. Brad Lidge got save #4 in the victory.
