Biggio bags 3,000th hit against Rockies

HOUSTON (AP) - Craig Biggio was exhausted and ready to talk about his latest accomplishment. He still had some time for an old friend, though.

"Hey Frankie, how you doing," he said nodding to a slight teenager with a mop of dark hair.

Biggio joined the 3,000 hit club and Carlos Lee hit a grand slam in the 11th inning as the Houston Astros beat the Colorado Rockies 8-5 Thursday night.

Biggio met the 15-year-old Frankie Velasquez through his work with The Sunshine Kids Foundation, an organization which helps children with cancer, when Velasquez was 6 and has kept in touch with him since.
