Astros Vs. Pirates Lineups: Andrew McCutchen Sits; Michael McKenry Plays

Here are the lineups for the final game of a four-game series between the Pirates and Astros at 2:05 p.m. on Sunday, as the Bucs go for the sweep.

Pirates:

Starling Marte CF
Alex Presley LF
Neil Walker 2B
Garrett Jones RF
Casey McGehee 1B
Pedro Alvarez 3B
Michael McKenry C
Jordy Mercer SS
James McDonald P

Andrew McCutchen gets a rare day off, and Starling Marte gets his first career start in center field. Michael McKenry, who has nine homers in 120 at-bats and a .907 OPS, gets another start. Bucs fans have been clamoring for him to get more paying time, instead of Rod Barajas, who gets the day off after starting a night game on Saturday. Jordy Mercer gets a rare start, taking the place of Clint Barmes at shortstop.

Astros:

Jose Altuve 2B
Marwin Gonzalez SS
Chris Johnson 3B
Scott Moore 1B
J.D. Martinez LF
Brian Bogusevic RF
