PNC Park | 1:35 | Maholm vs. Randy Johnson | Box
Randy Johnson struck out 10 and then got some help from the bullpen. After a shaky start that saw him give up a run in the first, the Unit rebounded to notch his first win at PNC Park.
Paul Maholm was the loser, giving another subpar performance. The Pirates had just seven hits and no walks. Jack Wilson made a pinch hitting appearance, his first game time in a couple of days, and struck out.

Brad Eldred was seen picking splinters out of his sliding pants.
