Tonight's pitchers are RHP Bud Norris (4-6, 3.51 ERA) and RHP Charlie Morton (7-4, 3.63 ERA). The game begins at 7:05 PM and will be shown on Root Sports.

The lineup: Alex Presley LF, Chase d'Arnaud SS, Garrett Jones RF, Andrew McCutchen CF, Neil Walker 2B, Lyle Overbay 1B, Brandon Wood 3B, Mike McKenry C, Charlie Morton P.

Wood stays at third after driving home three runs last night. Otherwise, your everyday righty lineup.

  • Tim Williams of Pirates Prospects updates the Pittsburgh injury list, how the walking wounded are progressing, and their estimated date of return.
  • David Todd of The Hammer Speaks dives a little further into the same topic. He looks at who's coming back, when, and who goes where to clear roster space.
  • Dave Cameron of Fangraphs writes that the Pirates should be buyers at the trade deadline. Most of the fans that commented disagreed, citing cost/benefit considerations.
  • Ben Nicholson of MLB Trade Rumors takes a look at the last Pirate playoff run in 1992 and a couple of small deals that helped get the Bucs over the hump.
