Summary of 2 articles · Updated Apr 21, 2013
It will be terrific if the Pirates can get one more win. It also marked the first time the Braves lost a game in which they had scored. It was a curious lineup that Hurdle sent out against Braves left-hander Paul Maholm, who came in as the only starting pitcher in the major leagues not to have given up a run this season, having thrown 201/3 scoreless innings. First baseman Garrett Jones sat despite a seven-game hitting streak in which he hit .409. It was in November, after the Steelers beat the New York Giants, that Steelers coach Mike Tomlin apologized to his players for bailing him out after a failed fake field-goal try with kicker Shaun Suisham.
