Pirates:

Alex Presley LF
Nate McLouth CF
Jose Tabata RF

Andrew McCutchen gets the night off for the Pirates, which automatically makes the Bucs’ lineup look a lot worse. But despite a triple in Tuesday night’s game, McCutchen’s offense has slowed recently, with his OPS dropping from .904 on April 18 to .750. The hot-hitting Pedro Alvarez, meanwhile, bats fifth.

Cardinals starter Lynn allowed one run and one walk while striking out four in seven innings in a win over the Pirates on April 20.
