Post Game Update
Tonight’s game in the Metrodome didn’t go so well. Paul Maholm was all over the place. He allowed 14 hits and 8 runs in 5 innings.

Pirate hitters managed 11 hits, but they could only get 2 runs across.

buccofans.com pointed out an interesting statistic regarding Paul Maholm and whoever catches him.

ERA with Jaramillo – 8.39
ERA with Diaz – 0.67
ERA with Doumit – 0.87

Pirate fielders struggled all night, losing balls in the white roof of the Metrodome.

This could be a long 3 game series.
