JA Happ (5-15, 5.71) will face Brian Burres (1-0, 1.69) in a battle of lefties tonight. The rubber match of the series will start at 7:05 PM and be shown on Root Sports.

Lineup: Alex Presley LF, Josh Harrison 3B, Andrew McCutchen CF, Derrek Lee 1B, Neil Walker 2B, Ryan Ludwick RF, Ronny Cedeno SS, Mikie McKenry C, Brian Burres P.

We were curious; Ludwick will move to right and Presley will stay in left.

  • The next Pirate loss or Brewer victory eliminates Pittsburgh from winning the Central Division championship. Boy, that race went by the boards quick!
  • The honors keep rollin' in for Starling Marte. He was named the Eastern League Player of the Month for August. He hit .393 with 9 doubles, 5 HR, 28 runs, 15 RBI and a .650 slugging %.
  • Mac Prine, the Pirates president in the mid eighties, died yesterday. Jim Leyland joined the team during his watch.
