Craig Biggio homered and set the modern record for being hit by pitches, and Roy Oswalt pitched seven scoreless innings for his fourth straight win to lift the Houston Astros over the Colorado Rockies 7-1 Wednesday.

Biggio was hit on the right elbow in the fourth inning by Byung-Hyun Kim, breaking Don Baylor's post-1900 record of 267 times hit by pitches. Biggio calmly turned and trotted to first as he had so many other times, but this time he pointed to the ball and asked the ball boy to send it back to the Astros' dugout as a keepsake for his years of pain.

When I think of guys getting dusted, I think of Frank Robinson and Don Drysdale. After having Robinson get off the deck and swat the next one over the wall, time and time again, Drysdale finally stopped throwing at him. "Didn't do any good", he said. "Just pissed him off".
