The Florida Marlins will turn to Dontrelle Willis in hopes of ending their losing ways in Pittsburgh when they try to avoid a four-game sweep at the hands of the Pirates at PNC Park.

 

Willis can become baseball's first nine-game winner if he can end Florida's miserable play at PNC Park.

 

Rob Mackowiak hit his second career grand slam and drove in five runs and the Pirates won their ninth in a row against the Marlins in Pittsburgh with a 9-1 victory Wednesday.

 

Pittsburgh's Josh Fogg made his most effective start in nearly a month, limiting the Marlins to one run and five hits in six innings.

 

``We're playing good baseball right now,'' Fogg said. ``Maybe when they come here they don't have a lot of confidence, and that's good for us.''

 

The Pirates began the four-game series with an NL-worst 7-13 record at home.

 

``I wish we could bottle this and do it against the rest of the league,'' Pirates manager Lloyd McClendon said.

 

And it's not just Pittsburgh that's beating the Marlins -- they've dropped seven of eight to fall a game behind Atlanta in the NL East. The Braves won in Washington 5-4.

 

``The last thing we want to do is start pressing or trying to do too much,'' Carlos Delgado said. ``So far we've played pretty good baseball. And we know that over six months, there are going to be times when you're not playing good. The sign of a good team is to bounce back.''

 

The Marlins hope to bounce back behind Willis, who has emerged as Florida's top pitcher this season with an 8-2 record and 1.67 ERA. The charismatic young southpaw began the season 7-0, but has struggled slightly over his last three starts with a 1-2 mark and 3.15 ERA.

 

Willis has given up two runs or less in eight of his 10 starts and is holding opponents to a .220 batting average. The 23-year-old Willis is 0-2 with a 3.06 ERA in three career starts against Pittsburgh.
