Pittsburgh blitzed Miami 11-0 Friday night to snap a seven game slide and establish competitive edge vs. the struggling Marlins. Colin Moran collected three hits and drove in five runs to punctuate the Pirates’ 18-hit weekend opening surge.
This afternoon, two-time All Star Chris Archer takes the mound opposite Miami. Archer hopes to rebound from his previous outing where the 30-year-old ceded five home runs and eight hits through six innings in a losing effort vs. Atlanta.
Overall, in 2019 Archer has allowed 58 hits, 38 earned runs and 16 homers during 59 innings scattered over 11 starts.
The Pirates are 3-8 when Archer (3-6, 5.73 ERA) opens.
Pittsburgh has shown decent offensive flashes, belying its #20 MLB offense, over the past ten games. And while run production hasn’t been problematic in that stretch, the Pirates’ defense, however, has become unhinged.
After giving up 53 runs through seven recent consecutive losses, Pittsburgh’s 5.17 ERA has slipped to #28 overall. It speaks to Miami’s recent struggles that the Pirates earned a decisive shutout Friday.
Once at live-dog status, Miami has regressed to early season form while scoring just two runs in its last four contests. The Marlins have lost seven-of eight, and scored one or fewer runs in six of those seven losses.
The Marlins look for an offensive breakthrough and task Sandy Alcantara (3-6, 3.67 ERA) with limiting Pittsburgh’s bats this afternoon.
Though three games below .500, Alcantara has shown promise this year while holding opposing batters to six home runs and 31 earned runs in 76 worked innings.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction:
Miami’s struggles, again, aren’t so much mound related as the club simply hits dry offensive spells. And going by recent trends, Pittsburgh’s bats will carry the day as the Pirates close their inaugural 2019 series vs. Miami on a winning note.
