Pittsburgh rallied from three deficits, including after Miami opened with a three-run first.
Giancarlo Stanton kept taking aim at the batter's eye high above the center field fence at PNC Park during batting practice on Friday afternoon, but couldn't find the right pitch to get it there.
Stanton is usually hits in the middle of the middle of the lineup, but Miami Marlins manager Don Mattingly moved him into the second spot in the lineup - which has proven to be the right move for the player and the team.
Miami has recovered nicely behind an offense that came into the game hitting an NL-best.273 on the road, a number that only ticked up as the Marlins had their way with Glasnow (2-6).
Stanton was struck in the first inning by a pitch from Trevor Williams.
Pirates: RHP Jameson Taillon (testicular cancer) will have his next step determined Friday.
