Here are the lineups for Game 2 of the Cardinals-Brewers series:

   ST. LOUIS CARDINALS          MILWAUKEE BREWERS
1. Rafael Furcal, SS         1. Corey Hart, RF
2. Jon Jay, CF               2. Nyjer Morgan, CF
3. Albert Pujols, 1B         3. Ryan Braun, LF
4. Matt Holliday, LF         4. Prince Fielder, 1B

7. David Freese, 3B          7. Yuniesky Betancourt, SS
8. Nick Punto, 2B            8. Jonathan Lucroy, C

SP Edwin Jackson, RHP        SP Shaun Marcum, RHP

After facing a left-hander in Game 1 the Brewers switch up the lineup to their standard alignment versus right-handers, which means Carlos Gomez to the bench, Nyjer Morgan in center field and batting second, and Jerry Hairston sliding down from No. 2 to No. 6.

St. Louis is shaking things up even further despite facing a right-hander in Game 1, as Tony La Russa has flip-flopped Matt Holliday and Lance Berkman in the cleanup spot behind Albert Pujols while starting Nick Punto over Ryan Theriot at second base.
