DENVER -- Houston Astros second baseman Craig Biggio was hit by a pitch in the fifth inning of Tuesday night's game with the Colorado Rockies, tying a modern major-league record.

Biggio was hit in the lower back by Colorado's Jason Jennings, matching Don Baylor (267) for the most times being hit by a pitch since 1900.

It was the 11th time he was hit this season. Biggio has been hit at least 10 times in 12 seasons.

The Rockies lead the NL with their pitchers hitting 49 batters.
