RHP Charlie Morton (9-6, 3.42) takes on RHP Edwin Jackson (2-2, 4.45). The game begins at 8:15 and will be shown on Root Sports.

The Lineup: Jose Tabata RF, Alez Presley LF, Andrew McCutchen CF, Neil Walker 2B, Garrett Jones 1B, Josh Harrison 3B, Ronny Cedeno SS, Mike McKenry C, Charlie Morton P.

It looks like the Bucs want to get a long look at Josh Harrison, while JT's move to right field may become permanent.

  • Alex Presley and Chase d'Arnaud were recalled officially, and Pedro Ciriaco and Aaron Thompson optioned back to Indy.
  • Aaron Thompson's start yesterday marked only the third time in MLB history that a first-time starter shut out a team that was 25+ games over .500. Of course, the other guys went long enough for the win (Thompson lasted 4-1/3 innings), but still pretty neat stuff from a guy that was an afterthought a month ago.
  • Altoona OF'er Starling Marte, 22, was named to Eastern League post season All-Star team.
