Finally. Let the games begin. The Pirates open the second half looking to change the history of the past twenty years. If you had Drew Sutton opening the second half as the team's leadoff hitter when the season started, buy a lottery ticket.

Casey McGehee is apparently fully recovered from the groin strain that forced him to leave Sunday's game. Alex Presley remains on the 7-day DL.

Clint's card:

Drew Sutton 7
Neil Walker 4
Andrew McCutchen 8
Garrett Jones 9
Casey McGehee 3
Pedro Alvarez 5
Rod Barajas 2
Clint Barmes 6
James McDonald 1

This is a massively important series for the Brewers as well. They need to figure out what they are going to do at the trade deadline and the next 18 will decide it. Zack Greinke becomes the first pitcher to start three games in a row since 1917.

For the Brew Crew:

Norichika Aoki 7
Nyjer Morgan 8
Ryan Braun 9
Aramis Ramirez 5
Corey Hart 3
Rickie Weeks 4
Cody Ransom 6
Martin Maldonado 2
Zack Greinke 1
