McCutchen scratched from lineup

Centerfielder Andrew McCutchen was scratched from Sunday’s lineup due to continued stiffness in his neck. The lineup change came after McCutchen took batting practice. He had already had treatment on his neck earlier in the day and had said he was OK to play.

The soreness came from “diving on the cement out there,” McCutchen said, alluding to the diving attempt he made in Saturday’s game.

The new Pirates lineup is as follows:

J. Tabata (CF), G. Jones (RF), N. Walker (2B), L. Overbay (1B), P. Alvarez (3B), M. Diaz (LF), J. Jaramillo (C), R. Cedeno (SS), R. Ohlendorf (RHP)
