Pirates Again Rally Late But Fall 4-3 to Marlins in Extras



Pittsburgh Pirates, Ke'Bryan Hayes


For the second-straight game, the Pittsburgh Pirates put together a late rally. This time, however, it wasn’t enough as they fell to the Miami Marlins 4-3 in 11 innings at loanDepot park on Saturday.

With a runner on third and one out, Jon Berti singled the other way to plate Joey Wendle, who began the inning at second base as the automatic runner. The base hit came off of Angel Perdomo (1-1)

Trailing by a run entering the ninth inning, Jason Delay doubled home Nick Gonzales with two outs to tie the game at 2-2. This came after Carlos Santana drove home Andrew McCutchen with an RBI single in the eighth to get the Pirates on the board.

Ke’Bryan Hayes gave the Pirates a 3-2 lead in the 10th inning with an RBI single before Yuli Gurriel tied the game at 3-all with a sacrifice fly in the home half of the inning.

Luis Arraez connected on a two-run home run in the fifth inning off of Osvaldo Bido to put Miami ahead. Arraez finished the game 1 for 3 with a couple walks and is now hitting .401 on the season.

Key Moment

Josh Palacios looked like he made a diving catch in left field to rob Jon Berti of a hit. After a Pirates’ challenge, the ruling of no-catch was confirmed. Two pitches later, Arraez put Miami ahead 2-0 with a homer.

Star of the Game

McCutchen notched his 400th career double and 300th with the Pirates in the sixth inning. He also doubled in his next at-bat and walked in three plate appearances to reach base safely in all five trips to the plate.

Stat of Interest

After going 0 for 2, Jack Suwinski is now hitless in his last 27 at-bats. The last time Suwinski had a hit in a game for the Pirates was a two-homer game against the Chicago Cubs on June 13.


  • Bido has given up three runs or less in each of his first three starts with the Pirates. He allowed one run in four innings against the Cubs in his debut and later went six innings, allowing three earned runs against Chicago. The right-hander now owns a 3.45 ERA.
  • Pirates’ starting pitchers this series have allowed only four runs in 20.2 innings (1.74 ERA). Mitch Keller held Miami to one run in seven innings in the series opener. Luis Ortiz followed on Friday night with one one in a career-high eight innings before Bido allowed only two runs in 5.2 innings pitched in this one.
  • Marlins right-hander Bryan Hoeing no-hit the Pirates across his five innings of work in the start. He issued three free passes and struck out a pair of batters.
  • Gonzales drew a walk in his ninth-inning plate appearance after beginning his career 0 for 6. His game-tying run was the first of his career.
  • Former Pirates catcher Jacob Stallings recorded his first three-hit game of the season for the Marlins.

Up Next

The Pirates (35-41) and Marlins (44-34) will wrap up their four-game series on Sunday afternoon. Johan Oviedo (3-7, 4.30 ERA) will get the ball for Pittsburgh. The Pirates will face rookie right-hander Eury Perez (4-1, 1.54 ERA). First pitch: 1:40.
