Game #147: McLouth, Maholm Dominate Cards

PNC Park | 7:05 | Maholm vs. Joel Piniero | Box It was a good night at the ball yard. For a change. Nate McLouth as a single shy of the cycle and knocked in five runs. Paul Maholm went eight plus, giving up just two runs for his ninth win. In the “can’t believe everything you read” category, Joel Pineiro started even though the Cards official site listed Brad Thompson. He gave up a two run homer to McLouth in the...

Game #146: Oswalt Faces Minimum in Shutout

Minute Maid Park | 8:05 | Duke vs. Roy Oswalt | Box I guess there is no shame in being shutout by Roy Oswalt who set the Astros club record for most consecutive scoreless innings pitched.

Game #145: Bucs Lose Again; Gorzy Injured

The Pirates had tied it by the fifth inning...

Game #144: Wolf, Berkman Pace Streaking 'Stros

Minute Maid Park | 8:05 | Ohlendorf vs. Randy Wolf | Box Are the Pirates this bad or do they keep playing teams on a roll? Don’t answer that. I don’t want to know. The Astros allowed just two hits after the first inning as Randy Wolf settled in nicely. The Pirates scored twice in the first courtesy of a walk and two of their four hits. Lance Berkman’s three run homer off Ross Ohlendorf in the bottom of the fourth...
