Pirates Vs. Marlins Recap: Bucs Lose 6-2, Split Series In South Florida,

The Pittsburgh Pirates dropped the second game of a quick two-game series in Miami on Tuesday night, losing 6-2 after Kevin Correia was chased early. The Marlins went to work on Correia in the first inning and then knocked him out of the game with a big fourth. He was charged with all six runs, after walking four and striking out just one.

Hanley Ramirez, Omar Infante, and John Buck all had two RBIs for Ozzie Guillen. Ramirez ripped two doubles, one bringing home Infante in the first inning and the other knocking in Jose Reyes in the Marlins' big fourth. Ramirez had a huge series for Miami and he bookended the scoring by jumping on two meatballs from Correia.

The Bucs offense made some noise against ace Josh Johnson in the first inning but managed to plate only one one. Garrett Jones was credited with the RBI, singling home Andrew McCutchen. But after Pedro Alvarez and Jones advanced to second and third on a throwing error, Clint Barmes would strand them both on a line out to third. Johnson would settle in from there and strike out six and allow six hits over seven innings of work. He cruised through the Bucs' lineup until Michael McKenry hit a 366-foot homer over the left-field fence to make it 6-2.

The Pirates now move on to Washington for another brief two-game series before interleague play opens this weekend.
