This is a nice matchup for the Bucs, since Marlins starter Carlos Zambrano has struggled with walks over the past two months. A.J. Burnett takes the hill for the Pirates at 7:05.

UPDATE from David:

The downside of Zambrano on the hill is he is 8-1 lifetime at PNC Park. Something has to give as the Pirates are 9-0 in games A.J. Burnett has started at home.

The Pirates' lineup is become pretty predictable these days, as one might expect. Clint's card:

Alex Presley 7
Neil Walker 4
Andrew McCutchen 8
Garrett Jones 9
Casey McGehee 3
Pedro Alvarez 5
Rod Barajas 2
Clint Barmes 6
A.J. Burnett 1

No Hanley Ramirez again tonight for the Fish. He did pinch run last night. Ozzie's card:

Jose Reyes 6
Emilio Bonifacio 8
Carlos Lee 3
Logan Morrison 7
Justin Ruggiano 9
Greg Dobbs 5
Omar Infante 4
John Buck 2
Carlos Zambrano 1
