Kevin Correia takes on the Indians' Josh Tomlin at 7:05 PM.  The game will be shown on Root Sports.

The lineup: Jose Tabata LF, Xavier Paul RF, Andrew McCutchen CF, Neil Walker 2B, Garrett Jones DH, Lyle Overbay 1B, Josh Harrison 3B, Mike McKenry C, Ronny Cedeno SS, Kevin Correia P.

Garrett Jones gets the DH nod.

  • June been berry, berry good to me...Andrew McCutchen leads MLB with a .460 avg. (23-50) and .548 on-base percentage this month.
  • The Bucs are 15-12 all-time against Cleveland.
  • RHP Mike Crotta has joined the Altoona Curve to begin his rehab assignment.
  • The Pirates signed their 41st round draft selection, Jon Schwind, from Marist. He primarily played third in 2011, although he's manned all four infield spots and the outfield as a Red Fox; the Pirates drafted him to convert into a catcher. Schwind hit .287 with five home runs, 32 runs batted in and four stolen bases in 52 games as a junior. The Pirates agreed to pay for his senior year of school ($41,000), plus a $20,000 signing bonus.
