RHP Chris Carpenter (9-9, 3.75) goes against RHP Jeff Karstens (9-8, 3.32) at 7:05 PM tonight. The game will be shown on Root Sports. JK returns after skipping two starts with shoulder fatigue; his last outing was in late August when the Cards chased him early.

Lineup: Pedro Ciriaco SS, Neil Walker 2B, Andrew McCutchen CF, Derrek Lee 1B, Ryan Doumit C, Garrett Jones RF, Ryan Ludwick LF, Josh Harrison 3B, Jeff Karstens P.

Hey, Ciricaco is getting a reward for his heroics last night. And Dewey's in the lineup; after all these years, could they possibly still be evaluating him?

  • Dave Schoenfield of the ESPN "Sweet Spot" blog thinks that maybe Tony LaRussa overmanages a bit.
  • Mike White of the Post Gazette reported that Joe Colella, long time Hopewell High and American Legion coach, passed away Sunday at the age of 80. Joe was a member of the WPIAL and beaver County Halls of Fame, and his presence will be missed on our local diamonds. Kevin Gorman of the Tribune Review also has a story on the ol' skipper.
