St. Louis manager Tony La Russa has decided to give a start to Skip Schumaker in place of the struggling Jon Jay, who has yet to manage a base hit in the series. Schumaker is a downgrade at the plate, but under these circumstances, La Russa probably figures a change is worth a shot. The Rangers' Ron Washington, on the other hand, is running out the same lineup he used in game 4.
