Pirates Vs. Dodgers, 12 April 2012

Another late one tonight, 10:10 on ROOT Sports. Jeff Karstens vs. Chris Capuano. Clint Hurdle is going to trot out a completely different lineup. I'm sure they didn't even use this one in spring training. We'll see if this one can draw a walk. The Pirates have yet to draw one in LA and have a major league-low five free passes.

Pedro gets the start against a lefty, Harrison is in for Walker at second, and Navarro takes over for Presley in left. Not the best defensive lineup in front of Jeff Karstens. The complete Pirates lineup:

Jose Tabata RF
Josh Harrison 2B
Andrew McCutchen CF
Casey McGehee 1B
Yamaico Navarro LF
Clint Barmes SS
Pedro Alvarez 3B
Michael McKenry C
Jeff Karstens P

-P- Indianapolis lost 5-4 to Columbus today. The Indians struck out 13 times and only managed four hits, but one was a three-run homer by Jordy Mercer in the fifth. Jeff Locke went five innings and gave up eight hits and five earned runs while striking out three. Starling Marte stole his fourth base.
