Pirates (38-34) at Phillies (35-40)

7:05 PM EST–Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia

Here is the MLB.com Gameday

TV: ROOT Sports

After a very disappointing series opener, the Pirates will look to rebound tonight against the hated Phillies. Other than in the Baltimore series, the Bucs have bounced back from defeats very well lately and have stayed away from the big losing streak. That’s the key on this road trip.

Roster moves: Drew Sutton was officially added to the roster, and Matt Hague was sent to AAA to clear a spot for him. Additionally, Eric Fryer was added to the roster in place of Doug Slaten. Fryer was likely just called up to be an emergency catcher; Rod Barajas is day-to-day after suffering a bone bruise last night, but he reportedly won’t need to go on the DL.

All-star voting update: Andrew McCutchen has moved up to 7th among NL outfielders, but the gap between his vote total and that of 3rd place Melky Cabrera (really?) increased this week…to about 1.58 million. Vote Cutch here.

Lineups: Phillies lineup, Pirates lineup.

Tonight’s starters…

Erik Bedard (4-7, 4.13) vs. Vance Worley (3-4, 2.78)

Bedard had a good start last time out against the Twins– a much needed bounce back outing for him. Erik pitched well against the Phils in the 1-0 Opening Day loss, so this could be an opportunity for him to get back on a bit of a roll.

Worley has missed some time due to injury, but is still having a very good sophomore season. He faced the Pirates on Easter Sunday and held them to one run in six innings. The run came on Pedro Alvarez’s first homer of the season.

Batter vs. pitcher tables after the jump.
