Round Those Bases, Pirates 10, Cubs Pitiful

Today his name is Pau, because he isn't getting the "L".

Maholm pitched a complete game 3 Hit shutout on 91 pitches as the Steelers beat the Bears 10-0.

Two of the hits Maholm allowed never left the infield.

The "Lets Beat the Maholm Run Support Thing to Death" factoid of the day is: The Pirates had provided Maholm with 14 Runs in 10 starts this year; they scored 10 for him against the Cubs today. He only needed 1.

Steve Pearce opened the run scoring barrage in the 4th knocking in two with a single.

Ronny Cedeno opened the home run barrage (2) with a 3-run shot later that inning.

Overbay (5) and Snyder (2) each went solo in the 6th.

Cutch went yard (9) in the 7th, knocking in 2, to complete a 2-5 day.

Did I mention the Cubs scored this many runs:

Lets do it again tomorrow, Karstens vs. Dempster at 2:20.......Get your brooms ready.
