Pittsburgh Pirates Vs. Toronto Blue Jays, March 7, 2012 Gamethread

Joining the game already in progress, we have the following lineups below the jump:

Pirates:

Alex Presley LF

Jose Tabata RF

Andrew McCutchen CF

Garrett Jones 1B

Pedro Alvarez 3B

Clint Barmes SS

Josh Harrison 2B

Michael McKenry C

Jeff Karstens P

Neil Walker was scratched at 2B. There is no DH.

Blue Jays:

Yunel Escobar SS

Travis Snider LF

Travis d'Arnaud C

Adam Lind DH

David Cooper 1B

Rajai Davis CF

Moises Sierra RF

Mike McCoy 2B

Brian Bocock 3B

It may seem unfair that the Jays get a DH and we don't, but they have to play Brian Bocock at third, so it evens out.

As I type the first inning was scoreless and hitless, with each side getting one strikeout.

In other news, Charlie Morton threw 28 pitches in an intrasquad game today. Tim Williams has a liveblog of the game at Pirates Prospects.
