Pirates Vs. Reds Lineups: Kevin Correia Takes Mound With Pittsburgh Needing A Win

The Pittsburgh Pirates need hitting in a hurry tonight as they look to snap out of a four-game losing streak, but any change in their play won't be due to a radical change in their lineup.

The Bucs run out virtually the same lineup Tuesday night against the Cincinnati Reds that they did Monday night. The only difference is the slightly more productive Michael McKenry is in at catcher for Rod Barajas to hit seventh, while Clint Barmes will hit in the eighth slot instead of seventh. Here's the full lineup:

1. Brock Holt (L) 2B
2. Alex Presley (L) LF
3. Andrew McCutchen (R) CF
4. Garrett Jones (L) 1B
5. Pedro Alvarez (L) 3B
6. Jose Tabata (R) RF
7. Michael McKenry (R) C
8. Clint Barmes (R) SS
9. Kevin Correia (R) P

The Reds make a couple of minor shifts, bringing in Drew Stubbs instead of Chris Heisey to hit second and play center while Scott Rolen is in for Todd Frazier at the No. 6 spot and playing third.

1. Brandon Phillips (R) 2B
2. Drew Stubbs (R) CF
3. Joey Votto (L) 1B
4. Ryan Ludwick (R) LF
5. Jay Bruce (L) RF
6. Scott Rolen (R) 3B
7. Dioner Navarro (S) C
8. Wilson Valdez (R) SS
9. Mike Leake (R) P
