Barmes borrows bat, hits key home run.

Craig Biggio, hanging out in the equipment manager’s office Wednesday morning, broke into a smile and greeted Clint Barmes with a warm handshake when the Astros shortstop walked in the door.

“Worked out pretty well,” Barmes laughed.

“I told you it would,” Biggio responded.

Apparently, before Tuesday’s game, Biggio recommended Barmes use one of his bats, which has a thicker handle than the ones Barmes normally uses.

“I came in here and asked (equipment manager) Carl (Schneider), ‘You have any of my old bats laying around?'”

In the fourth inning, Barmes sent a three-run homer to the left field Crawford Boxes, and the Astros went on to win the game — by three runs.

Needless to say, Barmes is using the bat again today.
