Tonight the Pirates welcome the return on Jung Ho Kang to the lineup.

Batting sixth and playing 3rd base tonight, Kang has been out of action since the end of last season due to a slide now outlawed by the league. Coming off a sour sweep by the Cubs, Kang provides the Buccos a boost in both the field and dugout.
