Big day for Youman

Former LSU pitcher Shane Youman earned his first major league victory Tuesday and he did it in impressive fashion.

The left-hander from New Iberia quieted one of the majors' top offenses, Milwaukee, to give Pittsburgh a 6-2 win. The win cemented Youman's long five-year climb from the 43rd round of the 2002 draft to the majors.

Youman made steady improvement during his LSU career and seems to have carried that over to his pro career. At 27, he no longer is a "prospect," but given the dearth of pitching prospects in Pittsburgh, he could make PNC Park his home for a while.
