Game 38: Marlins 9 Pirates 3

Perhaps it's mean to say, but no one can turn a close game in a laugher closer than Paul Maholm. For the second time this year, he just hit a brick wall last night. He gave up three gopher balls, then Marty McLeary gave up another one and all of a sudden a 1-1 game after five was 7-1 after six and a half. The Pirates tried to come back, but a deficit like that isn't easy to come back from for a team with our offense.

Dunno what else to say about this one, besides maybe that we made another crappy pitcher look good (Sergio Mitre, this time). That's kind of old hat now, and it hardly seems worth mentioning.
