Sports Briefing - Baseball - Pirates to Bat Pitcher Eighth - NYTimes.com Pittsburgh Pirates Manager John Russell plans to begin the season with his pitcher hitting eighth and shortstop Ronny Cedeno batting ninth, a move that will shift Andrew McCutchen from leadoff to second in the batting order. Russell said second baseman Akinori Iwamura would now bat leadoff. The Pirates had a 13-20 record in 2008 and a 2-4 mark last season when Russell batted his pitcher eighth.
