We delivered a solid winner for visitors on Tuesday as the Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates play under the total of 7 ½ runs. It was another quality outing from Cubs left hander Paul Maholm as he allows the opposition one earned run or less in his fifth consecutive start. The former Pirate gets the run support and he gets the win unlike his year last year in Pittsburgh where he went 6-14 despite an ERA of 3.66.

Griffin in his five starts this season has allowed two earned runs or less in four of those games.
