The Miami Marlins open up a three-game series with the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday. Can the Marlins extend their winning streak at PNC Park?

The Miami Marlins have won six in a row at PNC Park against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Perhaps a trip up there can help the Marlins recapture some momentum after dropping their last two games against the Chicago Cubs. The Marlins start a three game series with the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night.

The Marlins will send pitcher Ricky Nolasco (8-7, 4.47 ERA) to the hill on Friday. He is coming off a disappointing start against the Washington Nationals on July 15. In that game, Nolasco pitched five and one-thirds innings, allowing four runs on six hits in the loss.

The Pirates will counter with pitcher Kevin Correia (6-6, 4.25) who has won his last four decisions. In his last start on July 14 against the Philadelphia Phillies, Correia went six innings, allowing four runs, two earned, on four hits with six strikeouts.

Friday's game is scheduled for a 7:05 p.m. first pitch. Television coverage will be provided by Fox Sports Florida while radio coverage will be provided by WAXY 790 AM and WAQI 710 AM.
