The Pittsburgh Pirates return home for the first time after the All-Star break, and begin the first half of a six-game homestand with a weekend series against the Miami Marlins. The Marlins will be without third baseman Hanley Ramirez, who was taken to the hospital after a hand injury from punching a fan (the temperature-control device, not a person) in St. Louis was showing signs of being infected. He is being replaced by Greg Dobbs. As for the Pirates, there are hardly any changes from the lineup previous series with Colorado.
Here are the lineups for Friday's contest.
