James McDonald and Lucas Harrell, 2:05 p.m. Lineups:

Pirates:

Starling Marte CF
Alex Presley LF
Neil Walker 2B
Garrett Jones RF
Casey McGehee 1B
Pedro Alvarez 3B
Michael McKenry C
Jordy Mercer SS
James McDonald P

Michael McKenry starts, as expected, but Andrew McCutchen gets the day off, so Starling Marte will get his first career major-league start in center field.

Astros:

Jose Altuve 2B
Marwin Gonzalez SS
Chris Johnson 3B
Scott Moore 1B
J.D. Martinez LF
Brian Bogusevic RF
Chris Snyder C
Jordan Schafer CF
Lucas Harrell P

UPDATE: Johnson has been traded to the Diamondbacks for Bobby Borchering and Marc Krauss, so Martinez is batting third, Moore is batting fourth and playing third, and Steve Pearce is batting fifth and playing first.
