St. Louis tries to stay alive in Pittsburgh …
Cardinals manager Mike Matheny is sticking by his standard lineup, but the batting order changes a bit with Yadier Molina going back to the fifth spot after batting cleanup versus left-hander Francisco Liriano yesterday.
Pirates manager Clint Hurdle is going with defense over offense and sticking with Clint Barmes at shortstop for the second straight game after giving Jordy Mercer a start there in Game 2. And that means Pittsburgh is trotting out the exact same lineup that won yesterday to take a 2-1 lead in the series.
