While the Pittsburgh Pirates were able to split their four-game series in Miami against the Marlins, it is a series the Pirates easily could have swept

As they prepare for the upcoming MLB All-Star Break, the Pittsburgh Pirates are currently entrenched in a three-city 10 game road trip. The most recent leg of this trip saw the Bucs play. four-game series in Miami against the Marlins.

The trip got off to a very strong start for the Pittsburgh Pirates. After dropping the first game of the series in Milwaukee, the team reeled off four wins in a row. This gave the Pirates a rare series victory in Milwaukee, a 2-0 series lead in their four-game series in Miami, and a 4-1 start to the road trip.

Well, in the final two games in Miami things started to go sideways. What is most frustrating about this is that the Pirates easily could have, and probably should have, swept this four-game set in Miami.
