Gamethread: Brandon Cumpton makes 2nd start, Bucs to promote Duke Welker

USA TODAY Sports

Brandon Cumpton makes his second big-league start at 12:35 against the Reds. The lineups don't seem to be out yet. The Pirates really won't have a bullpen for this one, since Jason Grilli, Mark Melancon, Justin Wilson and Vin Mazzaro are all unavailable. The Bucs will option Alex Presley and recall Duke Welker to help make up for that.
