Game thread: Ivan Nova, Pirates go for sweep

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Before the game today, the Pirates recalled A.J. Schugel from Indianapolis, clearing the way for him by optioning Adam Frazier to Bristol. Frazier isn't actually going to suit up for Bristol, of course -- Bristol's season ends September 1, so the Pirates will be able to bring Frazier back when rosters expand without waiting the usual ten days.

Anyway, here are the lineups for today's game, in which the Pirates will go for a sweep at Miller Park beginning at 2:10.
