Cubs Vs. Cardinals Lineups: Berkman In, Beltran Out Against Chicago

The St. Louis Cardinals (20-14) take on the Chicago Cubs (14-20) on Monday, and the Cards will feature 1B Lance Berkman in the lineup for the second straight game after missing nearly a month. The Cards lineup will not be at full strength, however, as RF Carlos Beltran gets a day of rest in favor of RF Allen Craig.

Allen is hitting an impressive .359/.413/.821 with 5 home runs on the season. The utility man is in the middle of his second strong season from the bench after hitting home runs in the final two games of the 2011 World Series.

Here is a look at the lineups for Monday's game:
