The Miami Marlins and Pittsburgh Pirates face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at PNC Park in Pittsburgh. 

Marlins Try to Hold on

The Marlins are hoping to hold onto a Wild Card spot and they need to be winning these games. On Wednesday the Marlins got good pitching and they were able to secure 4-2 victory. The Marlins are averaging 4.15 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.51 runs per game. The stats haven’t been the best for this team but they just continue to win games. Luis Arraez is having a strong season and he currently sits with a batting average of .353. 

Pirates Looking to Close Season Strong

It’s been a disappointing season for the Pirates and heading into Thursday’s game they had lost three in a row. After such a strong start to the season the Pirates couldn’t keep it going. The Pirates are averaging 4.3 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.92 runs per game. The offense is ranked 21st in the league while the pitching is ranked 22nd. 

Shane’s Free Pick

The Marlins are the better team and they have so much more to play for right now.  The Pirates offense has been an issue heading into this game and they are going to really struggle to get the offense going here. Look for the Pirates to score only two or three runs and that will be enough or the Marlins to get the job done here. Back the Marlins on the money line to cash here. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
