Marlins Double A Affiliate Draws Larger Crowd Than Major League Team Wednesday

Marlins Double A Affiliate Draws Larger Crowd Than Major League Team Wednesday

Toeing the rubber for the Pirates in this one will be Jameson Taillon and he has gone 2-0 with a 1.26 ERA and a 0.49 WHIP in two starts on the year.

The Pittsburgh Pirates bunted their way to a 1-0 win over the Miami Marlins on Saturday at Marlins Park. The Pirates have been all about their offense in the early going, which has been among the best in the league, while the pitching has been less than stellar. They've gained 6.8 units for bettors taking the moneyline in this young season and 5.0 units ATS. But it happened and it came at the expense of Pirates starter Chad Kuhl.

In the other dugout, Pittsburgh's pitchers have allowed 5.0 runs per game and its starters own a 3.62 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 7.11 K/9. The Marlins have been outscored 55-21 during those eight games.

Marlins fans are likely avoiding the ballpark following an offseason where new team ownership - including former Yankee captain Derek Jeter - shipped off Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich, Marcell Ozuna and Dee Gordon. The throw was not in time and allowed Miguel Rojas to tag up at first base. In his 14.1 innings and 2-0 record this year, Taillon has a 1.26 ERA with 16 Ks and two walks.

Gov Mary Fallin declaring a state of emergency for 52 of the state's 77 counties in the western two-thirds of Oklahoma. Some 450 people also have been evacuated in adjacent Woodward County, where a fire has burned 115-thousand acres.

Before the season, the new Marlins management said it would announce only sold tickets for a particular game, which is one reason this season's attendance seems even more paltry.

The Marlins have been a poor offensive team so far as they come in ranked 25th in the league in scoring, putting up 3.25 rpg, while also ranking 27th in hitting at.218 and 27th in homers with six.

So perhaps it isn't a surprise that in order to avoid appearing in Miami court, the team is claiming it's based in the British Virgin Islands.

Meanwhile, the over is 7-0 in the Marlins' last seven Saturday games and Miami is 2-7 in their last nine overall. The at-bat displayed the 27-year-old's limitless potential and why the Pirates trusted him to be Francisco Cervelli's backup this season.
