Joe Kennedy tries to salvage a single game out of the series with Pittsburgh this afternoon in a little under half an hour.
Kennedy has been up and down this year, but more up than Jennings and Wright, so maybe we have a chance. An interesting lineup switch as Clint Barmes is slid back into the two slot and Cory Sullivan gets to lead-off. Sullivan fits the traditional leadoff mold better than Barmes, and Cory's had a good year thus far making the decision a little easier. I think this is a really good lineup for our team- balanced, patient, with some power besides- especially if Matt Holliday can come through in the clean-up spot.
The House picks Barmes and Wigginton for P&BJ.
