Marlins Vs. Pirates Lineup: Pittsburgh Manager Clint Hurdle Keeps Things The Same

The Pittsburgh Pirates have officially released the lineups for Saturday's contest against the Miami Marliins via the team's Twitter feed:

Manager Clint Hurdle is going with the same lineup that has won the Bucs their last two ball games:

Alex Presley - LF
Neil Walker - 2B
Andrew McCutchen - CF
Garrett Jones - RF
Casey McGehee - 1B
Pedro Alvarez - 3B
Rod Barajas - C
Clint Barmes - SS
A.J. Burnett - P

On Friday night, the Pirates got run contribution from Walker, Jones, Alvarez and Barmes who accounted for the four runs that Pittsburgh put on the scoreboard. The aforementioned Alvarez hit his third homerun in the last four games, with five of his last seven at-bats resulting in deep balls over the fences.

The Marlins have yet to release their lineups.
