Game 41 Recap: Maholm Loses Another Tough One

I look forward to the day when I can write that Paul Maholm got plenty of offensive support. Today isn’t that day. The Pirates offense was once again woeful. Maholm was solid. Those two things once again equaled a Pirates loss – their sixth straight. The offense collected ten hits. That’s good. What isn’t good is leaving nine men on base and having three others erased on the base paths. It looked promising...

Game 37 Recap: Kuroda Dominates Bucs

I officially feel bad for Paul Maholm. He can’t catch a break. The Pirates offense was unable to do anything against Hiroki Kuroda. The game was scoreless through five.

Game 17 Recap: Josh Johnson is an Ace

Marlins starter Josh Johnson faced one batter over the minimum in seven shutout innings. He gave up two singles and a walk and got two double plays behind him. The Marlins managed to piece together two big innings, collecting seven of their nine hits during those frames. The first hiccup was in the second. And it started with two outs. Mike Stanton was hit by Paul Maholm. Three straight singles from John Buck, Emilio Bonifacio and...
