Pirates vs. Mets lineups: Pirates push for .500

The Pittsburgh Pirates will attempt to get back on track against the New York Mets at Citi Field on Tuesday night after dropping the first game of the four-game series. There will be no major changes to the lineup for the Pirates as they will need to finish their season strong if they hope to have their first .500 or better season since 1992. The Pirates are still technically alive in the Wild Card playoff race, but are hanging by the slimmest of threads.
