As expected, the Cardinals are making some changes to their lineup for Game 6 of the World Series against the Rangers.
According to Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com, Cardinals manager Tony La Russa confirmed that Lance Berkman will bat cleanup against the right-hander Colby Lewis tomorrow night (weather permitting, of course) while Matt Holliday will be dropped down to the fifth spot. This was the same arrangement the Cards used against Lewis back in Game 2.
Holliday is batting just .167 (3-for-18) during the World Series and for what it’s worth, SI’s Jon Heyman hears that his right middle finger injury “is a lot worse” than he’s letting on. Rangers manager Ron Washington will likely continue to pitch around Albert Pujols in crucial situations, but Berkman at least offers a bit more protection at the moment.
