LF Carl Crawford
2B Mark Ellis
1B Adrian Gonzalez
RF Yasiel Puig
CF Andre Ethier
3B Juan Uribe
C A.J. Ellis
SS Nick Punto
SP Clayton Kershaw

Hanley Ramirez has tried to play through a cracked rib, but was in obvious pain and is now out of the Dodgers’ lineup. Nick Punto is starting at shortstop and batting eighth, with Yasiel Puig moving up in the batting order to take Ramirez’s usual cleanup spot.

2B Matt Carpenter
RF Carlos Beltran
LF Matt Holliday
C Yadier Molina
3B David Freese
1B Matt Adams
CF Shane Robinson
SS Pete Kozma
SP Michael Wacha

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny has made a bunch of changes, including benching lefty-hitting Jon Jay in favor of righty-hitting Shane Robinson in center field. Jay has been awful defensively in this series and Robinson delivered a Game 4 homer, so he gets the nod versus left-hander Clayton Kershaw. Matheny has also shifted lefty bat Matt Adams down in the order, with Yadier Molina cleaning up and David Freese batting fifth.

    What is this post doing on here? I came here for quotes of irrelevant St. Louisans that make the entire fan base look like a bunch of morons! Blasphemy!!!

    I like the call with Robinson.
    Yet…he trumps it with Yadier in the clean up spot again. Jeesh!

    Make me a believer Mike. Let’s get it done today! Go Cardinals!

    Good luck Sandy, Mule, et al…

      Yeah, I was hoping Robinson would get a start in Game #3. But I don’t quite get your issue with Molina in the clean-up spot. Adams is struggling, as is Freese, and who else would fit, unless you dropped Beltran or Holliday, and I like them where they are.

    Why do the Cards have ANYONE in the lineup? After all, no one likes them 😦
