Leg one of their three-city, 10-game road trip ended on a sour note for the Marlins.

Swept in three games at Washington, the Marlins head to Pittsburgh for a four-game series beginning on Monday at PNC Park.

The Marlins are now five games under .500 for the first time this season.

Riding a three-game losing streak, the Marlins turn to ace Dontrelle Willis in the series opener at Pittsburgh.

The Pirates are countering with lefty Tom Gorzelanny.

Monday marks the first of seven games against the Pirates this season. Historically, Florida has struggled with Pittsburgh, posting a 54-65 record, including a 21-41 mark on the road.

The numbers haven't gotten any better the past few seasons, as the Marlins are 4-12 over the past 16 games in the series. All-time at PNC Park, Florida is 6-13.

The Marlins' road trip opened in Washington, continues in Pittsburgh and will culminate with three Interleague meetings against Tampa Bay, beginning Friday, at Tropicana Field.

Pitching matchup
FLA: LHP Dontrelle Willis (5-2, 5.40)

Willis lost to the Dodgers on Wednesday, getting off to a slow start and allowing four runs on six hits over seven innings. He walked a season-high five, giving him nine walks in his past two outings. Lifetime against the Pirates, the D-Train is 2-2 with a 2.79 ERA.

PIT: LHP Tom Gorzelanny (4-2, 2.72)

With quality starts in five of seven appearances this season, Gorzelanny looks to build on his string of fine starts when he faces the Marlins. He's made one career start against Florida, getting a no-decision despite giving up just two runs over six innings.

Player to watch
Miguel Cabrera is in the midst of an 0-for-11 slump, and his average has dropped to .320. The three-time All-Star entered the Nationals series batting .333, but he went hitless in nine at-bats, although he walked four times. Cabrera hasn't gotten a hit since singling in the fourth inning on Thursday against the Dodgers.

Let's see the Train get back on track...

Pun or not, we desperately need a good outing from him.

Nothing like these douchebags to make someone appreciate Rich & Tommy.

I'm expecting Dontrelle to pitch a good game and get us back in the win column.
I'd like to see the offense give him 4 runs.
The defense, especially Miguel, is always at their best when Train is on the mound.

And a ton that has sucked for years and years. That plays no part, though.

Someone wake up Cabrera. The guy hasn't done a thing lately.
