Neil Walker was removed from tonight's lineup due to abdominal pain.
— Pittsburgh Pirates (@Pirates) June 9, 2014
Josh Harrison started the game at second base.
There is no further word yet on what may have caused the pain or how many games Walker might have to miss. He has played in 62 games already this year, and he is hitting .280 with 11 HR and 35 RBI. He is on pace to blow by his career highs of 16 home runs (2013) and 83 RBI (2011).
