Cardinals vs. Giants lineups: Pitchers represent only changes from Game 5

The St. Louis Cardinals will clinch a trip to the World Series with a win over the San Francisco Giants in Game 6 of the 2012 National League Championship Series. Despite losing 5-0 in Game 5 on Friday, the Cardinals will use the same lineup on Sunday. Meanwhile, the Giants will counter with their Game 5 lineup, as well.

Chris Carpenter (0-1, 4.50) and Ryan Vogelsong (1-0, 1.29) are the only new names written into either lineup. They'll face off in a rematch of Game 2, which the Giants took by a score of 7-1.

Carlos Beltran went 1-for-4 in his first start since leaving Game 3 with an injury. Matt Carpenter, who had three hits and two walks while playing in place of Beltran, didn't see any action on Friday and isn't in the lineup for Game 6.
