After a, shall we say, less than successful home stand the Marlins head out on the road for a 10-game trip.
The good news is: the Marlins, this year, have been better on the road than at home. Six of our nine wins have come on the road.
The bad news is: the first stop is Pittsburgh.
The Marlins since 2001, the year PNC opened, are 4-16 at the park with only two wins since 2002.
The starting pitcher for the Marlins will be Sergio Mitre. The Pirates will send forth Victor Santos.
Game time is 7:05 p.m.
Santos has been better of late but he has yet to win a game at home.
Something has to give.
