On location: Pirates 8, Reds 4

.

CINCINNATI — Looking ahead to first pitch …

Game: Pirates (27-26) vs. Cincinnati Reds (30-23)

Time: 7:10 p.m.

Site: Great American Ball Park

TV, radio: Root Sports, 93.7 The Fan

Here is the live box score.

And here is the Pirates’ lineup vs. Cincinnati RHP Homer Bailey

  1. Alex Presley, LF
  2. Neil Walker, 2B
  3. Andrew McCutchen, CF
  4. Garrett Jones, RF
  5. Matt Hague, 1B
  6. Casey McGehee, 3B
  7. Rod Barajas, C
  8. Clint Barmes, SS
  9. A.J. Burnett, RHP

UPDATE 3:18 p.m.: A little extra infield right now for guys at third base …

4:58: Just spent nearly two hours with the Pirates’ players, coaches, staff, and I feel almost odd in telling you this: It’s the most confident clubhouse I’ve seen with this team. They’re in second place, a game over .500 and yet, to a man, they are ADAMANT that they’ve UNDER-achieved to this point. And not just a little.

Take this from McCutchen: “It’s coming. We’re not there yet. We’re not close. But it’s coming.”

Sweep this series, and it’s first place. Just sayin’.

7:11: First pitch from Bailey to Presley, 67 degrees.
