Astros lineup 7/17 vs. Pirates. First pitch 1:05 p.m. CT


Yea! I know – I’m never happy, but Pence is the quintessential third place hitter in the lineup. Lee is so in the cleanup spot. Might be surprised if he plays the same guys (these) every day, and bats them in the same spot in the order so they will understand what is expected of them day in day out. Gosh – there’s an original idea. Bourn, Keppinger, Pence, Lee, Johnson, Wallace, Barmes, Corporan (Quintero), pitcher.

At least until Lee and Kepp are gone, then bring in Bogusevic or JD, and Altuve. Then when Castro returns, fun again.

Then drop Altuve in 2 spot, move Johnson and Wallace up, and put Bogusevic or JD in sixth or seventh, with Barmes moving up to sixth.
