Pirates 3, Braves 1
Delwyn Young's homer off Javier Vazquez was his first of 2009. (John Amis/AP)
Tasked with providing relief to an overworked 'pen and putting the Bucs in position to split the series, Paul Maholm performed admirably. The southpaw, working only with Delwyn Young's solo homer of support, allowed just one extra-base hit and struck out eight, setting the table for a ninth-inning rally.
