Pittsburgh (KDKA)- Is Pirates manager Clint Hurdle changing the lineup tonight to try to jump-start his struggling offense? Plus, I think it’s time the Pirates replaced Jeff Karstens in the rotation with Brad Lincoln.

Pirates Starting Lineup:
Andrew McCutchen, CF
Jose Tabata, LF
Garrett Jones, 1B
Neil Walker, 2B
Lyle Overbay, 1B
Pedro Alvarez, 3B
Chris Snyder, C
Ronny Cedeno, SS
Charlie Morton, P

Pirates Farm Report:
Indianapolis starter Brad Lincoln turned in another strong start this afternoon.

Lincoln pitched 7 innings, allowing 4 hits, 0 runs, walking one and striking out 7 batters.

In his last 4 starts, he’s 4-0 with a 1.80 ERA.

It’s time that Lincoln replaced Jeff Karstens in the Bucs rotation. Karstens isn’t a part of the Pirates future, Lincoln is.

*SS Chase d’Arnaud: 3-4, 2 runs, HR, 2 RBI (#19)….He’s raised his average from .219 to .280. d’Arnaud was the Pirates 4th round pick in 2008.

*CF Alex Presley: 1-4, run, 2B (#9)…..Average .346
*3B Josh Harrison: 2-4….Average .333
