Gaby already hit against a lefty, so either Jones does it, or Inge will have to play first.

Bases full if bucs, could it be a grand slam situation?

If this goes extras the Pirates have no bench left. Pirates need to get the lead here.

I'd take a slow ground ball where the only play is to first base.

Melancon to pitch the bottom of the 8th?

Neil Walker might think he's a switch hitter, but it might be time to Orlando Merced him at some pint in the near future.

It's the 8th and the Pirates are leading. Of course.

You're only a switch-hitter if you can actually hit the ball from both sides of the plate. Otherwise you're just facing the wrong way for some at bats.

As of 2011 Walker could hit lefties decently but with reduced power. Last year he stopped hitting lefties and that's continued this year. I don't know if it's back issues or the league has adjusted or what but it's a problem.
