Game 149: Astros 15 Pirates 3

So maybe Maholm coming back wasn't such a great idea. For the second straight day our started couldn't make it four innings (hell, Maholm couldn't make it three today) and our parade of relievers was mostly useless, save three nice innings from Brian Bullington. At least our starters are sputtering out with a bullpen full of fresh arms in mid-September and not during a part of the season where we were working with a normal roster.

As for the flip side of things, we only mustered four hits, but three of them were solo homers (Jack Wilson again, Jason Bay, and the first of Carlos Maldanado's career), so at least we scored some runs in our 83rd loss of the year. Twelve more solo homers would've been nice though.
