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).

Williams tossed seven innings of one-run ball Sunday in the Pirates' blowout win over the Mets. Juan Nicasio and Felipe Rivero will split closing duties for now.

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.

The Marlins also exchanged relievers, sending Brian Ellington to Triple-A New Orleans and recalling Drew Steckenrider. We'll have updates as soon as more information becomes available.

Coincidentally, Stanton made the leap from Double-A Jacksonville to the big leagues, and debuted on the same day as Washington's Stephen Strasburg.

Miami immediately retook the lead though, as the first two batters of the fourth, Realmuto and Derek Dietrich, crushed homers off of Williams. "It's not taken away from me, but it's a little speed bump".

"Got there in plenty of time", he said. "I can make outs'". He gave up three runs in four innings for Jupiter. It was his first rehab stint as he returns from rib cartilage inflammation.

Pirates right-hander Ivan Nova is projected to start. Taillon has not pitched since May 4. Straily is making his 11th appearance - eighth start - against Pittsburgh and is 3-3 with a 3.83 ERA in his previous chances.

Pirates: Ivan Nova (5-4, 3.06 ERA) will take his regular turn five days after leaving the game in Baltimore on Tuesday with left knee inflammation.
