Royals Vs. Pirates Lineups: Erik Bedard Leads Pittsburgh Against Struggling Kansas City

The Pittsburgh Pirates have released their lineup for Friday night's game against the Kansas City Royals. While the Pirates do not have one of the best offenses in the league, they hope to take advantage against a struggling Royals rotation.

With pitcher Erik Bedard starting for the Pirates, left fielder Alex Presley will lead off on Friday. Second baseman Neil Walker and centerfielder Andrew McCutchen will follow him in the order.

Here is the rest of the Pirates lineup.

First baseman Garrett Jones will bat cleanup, followed by third baseman Pedro Alvarez, right fielder Jose Tabata, catcher Rod Barajas and shortstop Clint Barmes before Bedard closes out the lineup for Pittsburgh.

The game is scheduled for a 7:05 p.m. start at PNC Park. The game will be televised on ROOT Sports with radio coverage on 93.7 KDKA FM.
