Is eight enough?

I feel like if any pitching combination was going to end our eight-game losing streak, it'd be Paul Maholm vs. Jeff Suppan at PNC Park. When you're mired in an eight-game losing streak, you need more than a good pitching match-up, though. More than anything, you need some breaks and luck. We've been short on both lately and it's probably too late because now football's officially here to push us the Pirates into obscurity.
