Pregame: Six-man rotation


Jeff Karstens will rejoin the starting rotation on Tuesday, when he faces the Cardinals at PNC Park. The right-hander has missed his past two turns due to shoulder fatigue. Unless another starter gets pulled for a breather, it seems the Pirates will go with a six-man rotation the rest of the way: Ross Ohlendorf, Jeff Locke, James McDonald, Brad Lincoln, Karstens and Charlie Morton.

Lineups for today’s game:

Marlins (63-79) – 1. Emilio Bonifacio ss, 2. Omar Infante 2b, 3. Greg Dobbs 3b, 4. Mike Stanton rf, 5. Logan Morrison lf, 6. Jose Lopez 1b, 7. Bryan Petersen cf, 8. John Buck c, 9. Ricky Nolasco rhp (9-10, 4.39)

Pirates (66-77) – 1. Alex Presley lf, 2. Neil Walker 2b, 3. Andrew McCutchen cf, 4. Derrek Lee 1b, 5. Ryan Doumit c, 6. Ryan Ludwick rf, 7. Josh Harrison 3b, 8. Pedro Ciriaco ss, 9. Ross Ohlendorf rhp (0-1, 6.35)
