Houston Astros Craig Biggio Records 3,000th Hit

On June 28, 2007, Astros second baseman Craig Biggio recorded his 3,000th hit.

Biggio joined an exclusive club even though he got caught trying to extend a single into a double.

Biggio collected five hits on a night that ended with a game-winning walk-off grand slam from teammate Carlos Lee in the bottom of the 11th.

It came one day shy of the 19th anniversary of Biggio's first career hit.

It was not the first milestone Biggio reached in his career; a few years earlier, he passed Don Baylor for the all-time record in getting hit by a pitch (268).
