Andrew McCutchen is a late scratch from today's lineup. The Pirates' centerfielder reinjured his right shoulder on Wednesday night while making a leaping catch against the outfield fence, and the injury flared up this afternoon during batting practice. Jose Tabata took his spot in the lineup. McCutchen is listed as day to day.
