Lineup, Notes

Washington's RHP Stephen Strasburg (2-0, 1.66 ERA) squares off against RHP Kevin Correia (1-2, 3.38). We'd feel a little better about this game if it was on the road... The contest will start at 7:05 and be aired on Root Sports. Looking ahead, the Astros will be in town over the weekend.

Hopefully, the team can get a deep start out of KC after the bullpen covered eight frames in yesterday's win.

Lineup: Jose Tabata RF, Alex Presley LF, Andrew McCutchen CF, Pedro Alvarez 3B, Neil Walker 2B, Garrett Jones 1B, Clint Barmes SS, Mike McKenry C, Kevin Correia P.

It's the usual lineup against righties, even ones named Stephen Strasburg.

  • Daniel McCutchen will replace Hanny while he's away at his grandmother's funeral. Hanrahan is expected back Sunday.
  • Pittsburgh will be going after its first sweep of the season tonight.
  • The Bucs are 10-1 when scoring 4+ runs in a game, and have won six of the last seven contests that they've homered in.
  • Insy SS Jordy Mercer extended his hitting streak to 11 games. this afternoon
  • The up and down Indy LHP Justin Wilson was up yesterday. He went six shutout innings, allowing three hits and a walk while whiffing six. He's 3-3 with a 3.38 ERA for the Tribe.
