Lance Berkman is not in the lineup. Last-minute scratch apparently. Will get updated info. Freese starts at 3B. Carpenter to 1B. #stlcards— Derrick Goold (@dgoold) May 15, 2012
Berkman missed 20 games earlier in the season with a calf strain that led to a 15-day DL trip. Despite the injury, Berkman has hit an impressive .344/.462/.500 slash while still awaiting his first home run of the season.
