Pirates ready for Reds . . . again


It’s a tad chilly here today at McKechnie Field or maybe I should say breezy. It’s 63 degrees and sunny but a bit windy. Considering it’s 39 degrees in Pittsburgh, I won’t complain.

The Pirates are on the field practicing pickoff moves and rundowns, but other than that, there’s not much going on.

The Pirates will play the Cincinnati Reds — for the second day in a row — today at 1:05 p.m. Here is the Pirates’ starting lineup:

1. Jack Wilson ss, 2. Freddy Sanchez 2b, 3. Nate McLouth cf, 4. Ryan Doumit c, 5. Adam LaRoche 1b, 6. Craig Monroe lf, 7. Brandon Moss rf, 8. Andy LaRoche 3b, 9. Ian Snell p.
