Maholm Hoping for Strong Finish

Lefty Paul Maholm's hopes for a strong finish have been placed on hold. Maholm missed his start on Thursday -because of tenderness in the rotator cuff of his left shoulder. Shane Youman took Maholm's spot Thursday. Maholm will not pitch on Sunday, Marty McLeary will start. Maholm has been outstanding of late and since the All-Star break has compliled a 5-2 record and 4.28 ERA.
