Leading off: Michael Bourn

I thought Cecil Cooper said he was going to wait awhile before moving Michael Bourn into the leadoff spot. In this case, awhile is 7 games, because Bourn is at the top of the lineup against Pittsburgh. Bourn has drawn only 1 walk so far (naturally, he drew a 4-pitch walk to start the game). On the other hand, he has only 2 strikeouts.

Tejada batting second, not a familiar location for him but you have to put him somewhere. Keppinger playing second base and batting 8th against the right-hander. Weird-looking lineup. But if they score 3 runs, their per-game average will rise.
