Cruz, Marisnick help streaking Pirates beat Marlins 3-2

MIAMI (AP) - Rookie Oneil Cruz hit a tiebreaking RBI triple and Jake Marisnick homered for the second straight game, helping the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Miami Marlins 3-2 on Tuesday night.

Diego Castillo had two hits for the Pirates in their fourth straight victory. Pittsburgh is 14-6 against Miami since 2018.

Dillon Peters (5-2) got the win with 2 2/3 innings of one-run relief.

Cruz made it 2-1 when he tripled home Castillo in the fifth. Cruz then scored on Jason Delay's single against Daniel Castano (1-3).

Miami got one back on Nick Fortes' RBI single in the bottom of the fifth. But Tyler Beede and Wil Crowe combined for three perfect innings before All-Star David Bednar worked the ninth for his 16th save.

Castano allowed five hits, struck out three and walked none in five innings.

Marisnick put Pittsburgh in front with his leadoff shot in the third. Miami tied it in the bottom half on Joey Wendle's sacrifice fly.

Chris Stratton threw 2 1/3 innings of one-run ball in a bullpen game for the Pirates. It was Stratton's first start after 161 relief appearances. He last started for the Los Angeles Angels on April 23, 2019.

Marlins first baseman Garrett Cooper exited in the sixth after fouling a pitch off his left knee. Cooper was added to the NL All-Star team on Tuesday, replacing Philadelphia slugger Bryce Harper at designated hitter.


    Before the game, Marlins catcher Jacob Stallings received his 2021 Gold Glove. Miami's Don Mattingly and Pittsburgh's Derek Shelton, Stallings' current and former managers, flanked him during the brief ceremony. The occasion coincided with the Pirates' only series in Miami this season. Stallings spent the first five years of his career in Pittsburgh, culminated by the Gold Glove-winning season.


    The Pirates activated Peters from the injured list and optioned right-hander Eric Stout to Triple-A Indianapolis.


    Marlins: LHP Jesus Luzardo (left forearm strain) was scheduled to throw two innings of batting practice Tuesday at the club's spring training facility.


    RHP JT Brubaker (2-8, 4.34 ERA) starts the third game of the series for the Pirates on Wednesday against Marlins RHP Pablo Lopez (6-4, 2.91).
