Game thread: Ivan Nova debuts

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Here are a few notes for today's game:

-P- The Pirates have selected Curtis Partch's contract from Indianapolis, so Partch will occupy Arquimedes Caminero's roster spot, at least until the Bucs add another starter later this week. Jeff Locke is headed to the bullpen, although he will not be available tonight.

-P- Clint Hurdle had a closed-door meeting with Jung-Ho Kang and his interpreter today. Kang is out of the Bucs' lineup tonight.

Here are the lineups for Ivan Nova's debut tonight.
