Astros Vs. Pirates Lineups: Michael McKenry, Alex Presley Start Against Jordan Lyles

Here are the lineups for Tuesday night's 7:05 p.m. contest between the Astros and Pirates.

Astros:

Jose Altuve 2B
Tyler Greene SS
Brett Wallace 1B
Justin Maxwell CF
Jason Castro C
Matt Downs RF
Jimmy Paredes LF
Brandon Laird 3B
Jordan Lyles P

Pirates:

Brock Holt 2B
Travis Snider RF
Andrew McCutchen CF
Garrett Jones 1B
Pedro Alvarez 3B
Michael McKenry C
Alex Presley LF
Clint Barmes SS
Wandy Rodriguez P

The Pirates have faded recently, and they suffered an exasperating 5-1 loss against the last-place Astros on Monday, but they're still just 2.5 games back in the N.L. Wild Card race, and they can really use a win from Wandy Rodriguez against his former team. They'll have to get through Jordan Lyles, a promising 21-year-old starter who's struggling through his first full season.

For the Pirates, Alex Presley mans left field, while Michael McKenry starts at catcher over the execrable Rod Barajas.
