Tom Gorzelanny


Gorzelanny allowed two runs and five hits with six strikeouts in six innings for the Pirates in a 5-2 loss to the Houston Astros on Thursday. It was the 24-year-old left-hander's fourth consecutive outing that reached at least the sixth inning.


Gorzelanny pitched eight innings for the Pirates, limiting the Chicago Cubs to two hits in a 6-0 win on Friday. It gave the left-hander consecutive wins for the first time in his career, as the Evergreen Park, Ill. native continues to get better on the mound.


Gorzelanny was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday and will start Saturday against Detroit. The left-hander was 6-5 with a 2.35 ERA for Indianapolis and was called up after Oliver Perez was sent down.


Gorzelanny will make his major league debut on Tuesday night, starting on the mound for the Pittsburgh Pirates against Andy Pettitte and the Houston Astros. The 23-year-old lefthander was 8-5 with a 3.26 ERA in 23 starts for Double-A Altoona in 2005. He has just one game of experience above the Double-A level, as Gorzelanny worked a playoff game for Triple-A Indianapolis earlier this month.
