Another day in Wrigley

Today's a very early (1:05) start with Paul Maholm looking to extend the new-look Pirates' winning streak to two against Ted Lilly. Maholm's got to feel like there's suddenly a ton of pressure on him with such an unproven lineup behind him, but Lilly hasn't pitched all that well lately and I feel like one of our young right-handed hitters (I'm looking at you Little LaRoche and Steve Pearce) might be able to do something against him today. Of course, whenever I have a gut feeling like that, it tends not to work out. I'm sticking with my statement, though.
