Pirates Vs. Cubs: Matt Hague, Garrett Jones Both In Sunday's Lineup

Here are the lineups for the Cubs’ and Pirates’ matchup at 1:35 on Sunday, as the Pirates go for the sweep against the flailing Cubbies.

Cubs:

David DeJesus RF
Starlin Castro SS
Joe Mather 3B
Alfonso Soriano LF
Jeff Baker 1B
Reed Johnson CF
Darwin Barney 2B
Koyie Hill C
Matt Garza P

Bucs:

Jose Tabata LF
Josh Harrison SS
Andrew McCutchen CF
Pedro Alvarez 3B
Neil Walker 2B
Garrett Jones RF
Matt Hague 1B
Michael McKenry C
Erik Bedard P

That’s one of the better lineups the Pirates have had recently, though that might not be saying much. Harrison is playing out of position and Jones isn’t much of a defensive outfielder. But Harrison in place of Clint Barmes is an offensive upgrade, at least for now, and of the putrid options the Pirates have to play first base and right field, Hague and Jones are probably the two best hitters.
