Blown. Bucs LOSE

2 6 0 7
3 9 1 8

Another game that started off positively, but went nowhere fast. Garrett Jones had an early 2-run homer, but the Astros came back in the 7th. No more run support came for Paul Maholm, who went 6.2 IP with 9 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 4 Ks, and 1 HR. On a lot of teams this would be a great outing, but for the Pirates he would have needed to allow 1 run or less, and even then he probably would have gotten a no decision. Chris Resop was pretty good in his 1.1 innings of relief though.

Jeff Clement got the start at 1B for some reason and went 2 for 4, the only multi-hit player. Other than Garrett Jones's home run in the 1st, Cutch also had a triple, his 5th of the season. Pedro had an especially tough day at the plate, going 0 for 4, all of them strikeouts. Paul Maholm got a hit, raising his average to .106.
