That was kind of embarrassing

If Craig Biggio wanted to make his 3,000th hit memorable, he certainly hit his target.

After a single to center, Biggio decided to push his luck and try for second, where he was unceremoniously thrown out by a Wily Taveras strike to Troy Tulowitzki.

Way to go, Jose Cruz... Just keep him at first, man - Biggio's not as young as he used to be.

It was The Girl who caught Tulowitzki's apparent apology to Biggio before all hell broke loose and Cruz started trying to hunt for the ball - let's hope we don't have a Mientkiewicz situation on our hands here.

Bonus points for bringing Jeff Bagwell out to the field to share some of the applause, that was a pretty classy move by Biggio.

Congrats and welcome to the 3,000 Hit Club.
