With a single, triple and home run in his first three at-bats, Craig Biggio knew what he had to do.

Astro second baseman Craig Biggio says he wants no charges filed against a Chicago White Sox fan who he claimed struck his wife Sunday night at U.S. Cellular Field. A team spokesman said the alleged incident took place late in Game 2, which the White Sox won, 7-6. One report said Patty Biggio had had her hair pulled, but Craig Biggio said the man struck her. "There was one guy that decided to act like a 12-year-old, slapped her upside the head and ran away like a kid," he said.

Craig Biggio kissed his wife, hugged everyone in sight and dragged retired teammate Jeff Bagwell onto the field for the celebration. It was the perfect place for the Houston Astros' second baseman to get his 3,000th career hit. "I couldn't have scripted it any better," said Biggio, who tied a career high Thursday with five hits. "There are a lot of things that have happened over the past 20 years but tonight is the best."
