Game #57 vs. Los Angeles

Game #57 vs. Los Angeles

PNC Park | 7:05 | Maholm vs. Derek Lowe | Box
Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com on the game:
The Pirates ran out of time in their series finale against the Dodgers as their offense did not get rolling until the seventh inning. Xavier Nady crushed a two-run homer, and Jose Bautista added a solo shot in the eighth before Los Angeles put the game away.
I think my intro to the game wrap would've read:
The Pirates were losing 5-0 before they decided to start hitting. Derek Lowe had a no-hitter going through six innings. Paul Maholm was mediocre, almost crossing the line into the territory of bad. After going 2-5 on a home stand against winning ballclubs, the Pirates are 24-33 and only 2.5 games out of last place in the NL Central.
