Pirates | Casey McGehee bats seventh Friday

Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle decided to shake up his batting order prior to the game against the Atlanta Braves Friday, April 27, by dropping 1B Casey McGehee to the No. 7 spot in the lineup. OF Garrett Jones was moved up to the cleanup spot, followed by 2B Neil Walker and 3B Pedro Alvarez. This gave the Pirates three consecutive left-handed batters in front of McGehee as they faced right-handed SP Tommy Hanson. Jones, Walker and Alvarez combined to go 2-for-9 with three walks in the game, while McGehee went 1-for-3.
