After a long roadtrip out west, the Bucs are back for an eight-game homestand. They’ll start off with the Miami Marlins, a team they took two of three from on the road back in June. The Pirates will likely be without their star for this series, but the good news is that he’s not on the disabled list (yet).
News, Notes, Storylines
– Bucs are back at PNC, where they have the best home record in the National League (34-21).

Player to Watch
Giancarlo Stanton. The 6’6″, 240-pound beast has carried the Marlins again this season, hitting .289 with a .935 OPS. His 4.5 WAR is fourth-best in the National League, right behind Andrew McCutchen’s 4.6. Stanton’s 26 homers and 74 RBI lead the NL. Try not to let this guy beat you.
Pirates take two of three.
