I see we're bringing Maholm back out for the sixth. Just like yesterday, I know our pen is worn down, but he's thrown well over 100 pitches and this just seems like a bad idea... (as I'm hitting publish Hector Luna is busying singling).

UPDATE (8:38): Fortunately, I'm wrong on this one as Maholm sets down Skip Schumaker (who?), Marquis, and Eckstein to get out of the 6th. This makes two out of three starts in which the Buccos young pitchers have given us 6+ solid innings (Sanchez just hit for Maholm meaning his day is definitely over).
