Paul Maholm (LHP) (4-2, 3.61 ERA, 50 K) @ Glen Perkins (LHP) (1-3, 5.36 ERA, 26 K)

8:10 P.M. EST @ Metrodome

After getting a series win against the Tigers, interleague play continues, and the Pirates travel to Minnesota for a 3 game set.

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.

The Stanley Cup is coming to PNC Park today, and Bill Guerin is throwing out the first pitch.

STANLEY CUP

Post Game Updates
Tonight’s game was interesting. It was old-school night at PNC Park. This year marks the 100 year anniversary of the Pirates defeating the Tigers in the World Series. Everything at PNC Park was imitated to make it look more like 1909. Baggy uniforms, no mascots, and a plain looking scoreboard made for a unique night at the park.

Ross Ohlendorf pitched 6 nice innings to get the win in today’s rubber match. Grabow and Capps pitched well to close out the 8th and 9th.

Andrew McCutchen went 2-3 with 2 runs. Freddy Sanchez went 2-4 with 2 runs. Delwyn Young went 3-4 with a run.

Rick Porcello (RHP) (6-4, 3.98 ERA, 36 K) @ Ian Snell (RHP) (1-6, 5.54 ERA, 45 K)

7:05 P.M. EST @ PNC Park

With Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final tonight, this game is a bit of an afterthought. Hopefully the city of Pittsburgh can get 2 wins over the city of Detroit tonight.

Post Game Update
The only thing that mattered to most Pittsburgh fans tonight is that Lord Stanley came back home. The Pens shocked the Detroit Red Wings in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals to win their 3rd championship.

The Pirates’ game didn’t go as well. Ian Snell gave up 2 runs in 7 innings, and the offense could only muster 1 run on 8 hits.

Tiger pitcher, Rick Porcello went 2-3 with 2 RBI to earn his own win.

Whatever, the Pens won. That’s enough excitement to last me for awhile.
