The Marlins won 6-5 on Wednesday to salvage a game in Wrigley and snap the Cubs little five-game winning streak.
Jose Urena was serviceable in five innings and Dee Gordon scored what proved to be the winning run on a strike three that got away from Miguel Montero.
Edinson Volquez makes his no-hit encore on Thursday night in Pittsburgh, where he enjoyed one of his finest seasons in 2014 as a member of the Pirates.
The no-hitter doesn’t mean much going forward. He only threw 98 pitches so it isn’t as if Don Mattingly stretched him too far to get the no-no but he isn’t much different as a pitcher. He’s still better than his, now, 1-7 record indicates.
The Pirates come back home after losing two games in Baltimore they should have won. The O’s blew a two-run lead in the ninth on Tuesday and a four-run lead in the last inning last night. Tony Watson’s ERA is up to 4.44 with a WHIP that’s far too high for a closer.
Gerrit Cole hasn’t been going great of late, either. Cole’s ERA has jumped up nearly a run-and-a-half over his last three starts (16 ER in 14.2 innings) and that Miami offense is pretty tough. With a shook bullpen out there, Cole must feel some responsibility to get deep tonight.

Free Miami Marlins vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction: Miami wins with offense.
The no-hitter should settle Volquez down a bit. I expect five or six decent innings tonight. I’m a big fan of the Marlins’ lineup, though.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Miami +127
I’ve got Miami -105 on the road. The Pirates can’t be feeling too good about things right now.
