Miami is currently 4th in the NL East at 24-31 while Pittsburgh is last in the NL Central at 21-34.
This is the first meeting between these foes since the 2019 season.
Miami has struggled to find their footing this season and stand at 0-5 on their current 9-game road trip which includes back to back losses to the Boston Red Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays.
Jesus Aguilar continues to generate offense, collecting 6 RBI’s in his last 8 games overall. The 30-year old slugger has been the team’s best offensive player, launching nine homers with 38 RBI’s and a .778 OPS.

Free Miami Marlins vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction:
Pittsburgh rallied late yesterday to win 5-3 in the first game of the series with the Marlins.
Marlins are winless on their 9 game road stand so far but I see that trend stopping here with Poteet on the mound. He’s 2-1 with a 2.95 ERA which is much better than the Pirate’s Mitch Keller who is just 3-6 with a 6.54 ERA.
Take Miami to bounce back in game 2 and get back in the win column.
