LHP Aaron Thompson (0-0, 0.00) vs. RHP Shaun Marcum (11-3, 3.40 ERA). The game starts at 12:35 and will be shown on Root Sports. Marcum is a tough customer; he hasn't lost a game since the end of June.

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

  • Rob Biertempfel of the Tribune Review reports that Brad Lincoln will get his audition for next year now. With Kevin Correia likely to be out for the remainder of the season, Lincoln is in line to get six more starts to impress Pirate management.
  • Poor Pedro Ciriaco. He was here for a day, and then sent back down to clear a roster spot for Aaron Thompson.
