MLB Scores: Miami Marlins 6, Pittsburgh Pirates 8

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Marlins fell to the Pittsburgh Pirates 8-6 on Saturday afternoon. Randy Wolf struggled on the mound while Charlie Morton pitched well for the Pirates.

After a 13 inning loss on Friday, the Miami Marlins fell to the Pittsburgh Pirates 8-6 on Saturday afternoon in game two of the three game series.

Pittsburgh got on the board against Marlins starter Randy Wolf in the top of the second. Jordy Mercer opened the frame with a home run to left center field, and after the Pirates loaded the bases, Gregory Polanco added an RBI on a fielder's choice to give the Pirates a 2-0 edge. Wolf was able to induce a double play ball to end the inning.

Andrew McCutchen's three run home run to left field in the top of the fourth extended Pittsburgh's lead to five runs against Wolf, who struggled to find the strike zone with his offspeed pitches.

After three solid innings from Pirates starter Charlie Morton, Miami was able to score a pair of runs in the bottom of the fourth. Garrett Jones walked and scored on a Marcell Ozuna triple down the right field line, and J.T. Realmuto hit a ground ball up the middle to make it a 5-2 contest.

Wolf was pulled after four innings, during which he gave up nine hits and five runs while walking and striking out two.

Kevin Slowey was the first to relieve Wolf, but Slowey's inability to keep the ball down in the zone led to a three run top of the fifth that gave the Pirates a six run lead.

Bryan Morris added two scoreless innings of relief and Mike Dunn worked a scoreless ninth for the Marlins before Marcell Ozuna and Jeff Baker each hit two run home runs. Miami will look to bounce back in the final game of the series on Sunday afternoon.
