Marlins had fewer people in attendance than Double-A affiliate Wednesday

Marlins had fewer people in attendance than Double-A affiliate Wednesday

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.

Miami Marlins outfielder Cameron Maybin is absent from Friday's starting lineup against the Pittsburgh Pirates. That's compared to a reported average attendance of 24,996 for their first nine games last season.

Whereas the Marlins are nonetheless having fun with residence video video games in downtown Miami, the group is making an attempt to get out of an space lawsuit by claiming that the franchise is an organization citizen of the British Virgin Islands, the Miami Herald reported Monday.

"No matter how many runs I give up, I need to save the bullpen, and keep as many arms off the field as possible", Peters said after that game, which was his eighth major league start. "He's got an eight-game hitting streak coming into the game". "Quite honestly, I didn't feel that great".

"It's one of those games where you're looking for a big hit, or get a break here or there, but if you look at it as a whole, obviously Trevor was really good today", Marlins manager Don Mattingly said.

The Pittsburgh Pirates look for another victory to build on their impressive 10-4 record.

Pittsburgh (9-3) just won two of three against the Cubs, including a 6-1 win Thursday that featured four homers.

Pirates right fielder Gregory Polanco gloved the ball in right field and Peters scored the first run. "He just wanted to help us win a ballgame".

The Pirates are leading the National League with 77 runs and in slugging percentage at.460. But that was just the beginning of the peculiar play. And it's early. We like the direction we're heading. "But Ziegler has been around a long time and he can induce a double play better than anybody and I was trying to do something simple and try to win the ball game for us". In his career, he has gone 7-4 with a 3.87 ERA in 17 starts on the road and 4-0 with a 1.81 ERA in seven starts in March/ April, while against the Marlins he has gone 1-0 with a 1.80 ERA in one start.
