One is a win, two is consecutive, three is a streak. A streak is what the Pirates now have after a convincing 3-1 win today in front of over 12,000+ at PNC Park. Paul Maholm was steller going 7.2 innings only giving up the one earned run while throwing 110 pitches. Maholm also was hit by two batted balls today. Once in the shoulder and once in the calf. Both times Maholm continued to pitch after being hit which is good for the Pirates.
Despite the solid game the Pirates only managed five hits the entire game, two off the bat of Delwyn Young who raised his average to .312. I guess Prince might know who he is now after he is hitting around .500 against the Brewers this year. Prince, on the other hand, ended up going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts. Nice game Prince. The Brewers are now basically out of the playoff picture for good being four games under .500.
Solid series for the Pirates as they finally show life. They looked as dead as you could before the series started but they should feel pretty good after bringing out the broom for the win.
Let the good times roll...
