Gamethread: Francisco Liriano takes on Padres

Stephen Dunn

Here's the lineup for tonight's 6:40pm game, and it's a weird one. Yesterday I thought Travis Snider's start might be his last with the Pirates, but that turned out to be wrong. Neil Walker gets his first day off of the season, Josh Harrison starts in his place, and both Travis Snider and Jose Tabata are in the lineup. That means Starling Marte also is off, with Clint Hurdle saying the Pirates are "unplugging" him. Marte is 0-for-15 in his last five games. Ian Kennedy starts for the Padres.

Josh Harrison 2B
Travis Snider RF
Andrew McCutchen CF
Ike Davis 1B
Jose Tabata LF
Pedro Alvarez 3B
Jordy Mercer SS
Chris Stewart C
Francisco Liriano P
