The Pittsburgh Pirates will try to take their weekend series against the Cardinals with a win on Saturday afternoon at Busch Stadium. The Bucs edged out a 2-1 win on Friday night behind a rebound performance by James McDonald and three solid innings of work from the bullpen. Erik Bedard will take the ball for Clint Hurdle in second game of the series.
Bedard will be opposed by Lance Lynn, who enters the game 13-5 with a 3.65 ERA. With the afternoon game following the evening finish on Friday, Hurdle juggled the lineup card a bit. Rod Barajas will replace Matt McKenry behind the plate, while Jordy Mercer will move from the eight-hole and bat second behind Starling Marte. The complete lineups for both teams below:
