Pittsburgh (KDKA)- Statistically, Kevin Correia has been the Pirates best pitcher in 2011. If Paul Maholm had gotten any support from his offense this season, we might say he’s been the Bucs top starter.
Last night, the Pirates not only wasted a great chance to reach the .500 mark but also a great performance from Maholm.
That’s something the Bucs offense has done too much in 2011.
