DK has made mention several times that Maholm suffered a groin injury and has tried to pitch through the nagging problems for some time.

BTW, so far so good on Garrett Jones. I like what I see.

For what it is worth, in the last 130 innings, the Pirates have scored more than 1 run in an inning on a whopping 13 occasions (including Jack's 2 run HR tonight). That includes:
Scoring 2 runs on 7 occasions
Scoring 3 runs on 4 occasions
Scoring 4 runs once
Scoring 6 runs once

I'm thinking.....JJ don't swing on the first pitch please and hit into a DP...............what does he do?...........THANK YOU FOR A BOTCHED DP BERKMAN AND PUDGE!

D Young gets a single..........yes........

Cutch gets a single......Beasley sends JJ home (WHY?).....he is out

Jack another single......Young scores.......yes!

Moss makes the third out.............umm.......if we move Moss to Indy or to anywhere else, I won't miss him........ :roll:

Watching the Astros feed the past two nights. They are in awe of Cutch and his speed. They also noted the hard throwers that the Bucs have now w/ Hanrahan, Meek, and Chavez. Of course H can't find the strike zone which is a problem.

BTW - They mentioned Hanrahan could actually be the winning pitcher in a game to be resumed on Thurs between the Nats and Astros since the Nats took the lead as Home team while he was pitching. That's odd. :)

Hah! I like that. Wonder how they'll record that in the stats book.

God, WHY DIDN'T YOUNG BUNT!?!? Terrible decision Russell to have Young swing away there.

Maholm was on the post game show with Rocco lastnight...He said the groin is doing better and he's been battling a problem with his left knee, but they've both been better and he's hoping he wont need any kind of surgery on it at the end of the season...

He has had problems with the knee since high school and had surgery one it, I think he said his senior year of high school...

He also talked about how him and Kerrigan were working on him keeping his sinker down more than keeping it to the corners of the plate which he was letting it get waist high and getting crushed...
