The Pirates continue their slide in the NL, going from one-time possible contenders for at least a wild card spot to almost guaranteed sellers at the trade deadline. Can the Pirates turn it around over the weekend vs. a fellow last place squad in Miami?
Heading into Friday’s series opener at Marlins Park the Pirates had dropped 7 games in a row – all on the road. Pittsburgh showed no signs of jet lag however as they broke the losing streak in a big way with an 11-0 win at Marlins Park.
The Pirates 11 run output continued some strong offensive showings lately. The Pirates put up at least 4 runs in 5 of their 7 losses during the recent streak which shows an idea of the pitching struggles that the Bucs’ have faced as of late.
The Pirates held a 5-0 lead by the 5th inning on Friday which allowed them to use their bullpen sparingly. That should help Dario Agrazal as he makes his MLB debut on the mound Saturday night. Agrazal has a 3.27 ERA in 12 minor league starts on the year.
The Marlins play their 8th straight home game on Saturday night but so far they’ve only managed 1 win over that span. A major issue is the Miami bats, which have been held to 1ER or less in 5 of their last 7 starts.
No Marlins batters have obviously faced Pittsburgh’s starting pitcher for this tilt as he makes his major league debut. It’s hard to see Miami putting up much offense in this one though as they have hit just 3HR as a team in the past week making the under of 8 looking like a solid play.
Another reason a low scoring game should be expected – at least out of Miami – is because Marlins starter Pablo Lopez has owned June. The right-hander has allowed just 1 ER in two starts this month and 2 over his last 3 starts total.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Pirates are 5-16 last 21 overall
- Pirates are 1-7 last 8 road games
- Marlins are 1-6 last 7 overall
- Marlins are 5-14 in Lopez’s last 19 starts
- Pirates are 4-0 last 4 H2H meetings
Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction:
Is there ever good value on the Marlins? Yes Lopez has been dealing on the hill, but Miami has still lost 14 of his last 19 starts. With the Marlins offense being basically nonexistent lately and the Pirates squeezing a lot of their juice with 11 runs scored Friday expect a much lower scoring game in this one.
