Neil Walker and Pedro Alvarez get the day off, which means that the bottom of the Pirates' lineup is pretty gross-looking, but neither Walker nor Alvarez have historically been very good at hitting lefties, and neither of them have hit much at all in the first eight games of the season (for whatever that last part is worth).
