Empty Jeet seats: Marlins outdrawn by Double-A affiliate

Dickerson reached first safely and Starling Marte, standing on third while waiting to see if the ball dropped, sprinted home to score what proved to be the winning run in the 1-0 victory Saturday night at Marlins Park.

The Pirates have won three of their last four games SU while the Marlins have lost seven of their last eight SU. "He was committed", said Pirates manager Clint Hurdle, who was not tempted to pull Taillon at any point despite the fact that no Pittsburgh starter had lasted beyond six innings. If that number doesn't hit home, then just know that their double-A affiliate drew more fans to their field than the professional baseball team.

"Basically, just a good old-fashioned ballgame broke out tonight", Hurdle said. He allowed three runs and struck out nine, his highest total since 2016. In his 14.1 innings and 2-0 record this year, Taillon has a 1.26 ERA with 16 Ks and two walks.

"It took everything tonight to get through", Taillon said. "It definitely wasn't my best stuff or best executed game". That included a three-hit, 95-pitch shutout on April 29, one of those 11 starts of seven or more innings. "Quite honestly, I didn't feel that great".

Miami stranded a runner on third base in the second, fourth, and eighth innings.

Miami may get a crowd this weekend as they welcome the Pittsburgh Pirates into town.

Marlins: C J.T. Realmuto (back) will begin a rehab assignment with Single-A Jupiter on Saturday.

Pittsburgh (-125) is favored over Miami (+115) and oddsmakers have set the Over/Under for this night game at nine runs (-115 for the over and -105 for the under).

The surprising Pirates (11-4) improved to 7-0 in day games, completed a 4-2 trip and head home atop the NL Central. 3B Martin Prado (hamstring) played five innings in an extended spring game on Friday.

Marlins: RHP Jose Urena (0-2, 5.06) has allowed six runs in 15 innings for a 3.60 ERA since giving up three runs in the first inning to the Cubs on opening day.
