Bucs Win, 7-6

Sports Network | August 3, 2010

Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) – Neil Walker went 3-for-4 with a career-high four runs batted in, as the Pittsburgh Pirates held on for a 7-6 win over the Cincinnati Reds in the second of a three-game series that was delayed by an hour and 25 minutes at the outset.

Chris Snyder contributed a two-run single for Pittsburgh, which snapped a five-game slide and won for the third time in its last 12 overall. Jose Tabata went 2-for-4 with an RBI and scored twice in the win.

Paul Maholm (7-9) worked six-plus innings to take the win. The left-hander, who was just 1-3 with a 6.23 ERA over his previous five starts, allowed four runs on nine hits, walked two and struck out a pair. Joel Hanrahan tossed a scoreless ninth to pick up his first save since May 24th of 2009 when he was with Washington.
