5/14 Marlins @ Bucs at the PNC-1:30

The Marlins became the last team to reach double digits in the win column with Saturday night's victory.


Now it's on to bigger things. And they can start on Sunday afternoon against the Pirates, where a win would push the Fish out of the National League's basement.


Brian Moehler will be charged with that task in this Mother's Day affair. The 34-year-old right-hander has largely struggled this season, not once making it past the sixth inning. In his last start, he allowed seven runs over just 5 1/3 innings. The Fish hope a Pittsburgh offense whose .234 average is the league's worst can help turn Moehler around.


The Bucs will counter with Ian Snell, who has been excellent of late. After sputtering out of the gates, the 24-year-old right-hander has allowed just five earned runs over his past four starts (25 2/3 innings). This will be Snell's first career appearance against Florida. Pitching matchup

FLA: RHP Brian Moehler (0-4, 9.76 ERA)

Lifetime in six career starts against Pittsburgh, the 34-year-old right-hander is 2-3 with a 5.72 ERA.

PIT: RHP Ian Snell (2-2, 4.65 ERA)

Snell has struggled when the lights are off. In his nine afternoon outings, Snell is 0-2 with a 7.48 ERA, more than three runs higher than the 23-year-old's ERA at night.

Player to watch

Pirates right-fielder Jeromy Burnitz has hit .368 (7-for-19) with a pair of homers in his career off Moehler.

Pirates catcher stopped a ball rolling away with his mask, which technically is a 2-base balk. Interesting, I knew that wasn't allowed but didn't know it was a 2-base penalty.


Marlins could've scored a run & you would've thought guys like Girardi & Gary Tuck might've spotted that.
