Cardinals Vs. Giants Lineups: Carlos Beltran Sits, Matt Carpenter Starts In Right

RF Carlos Beltran will miss his fourth straight game on Thursday afternoon. The St. Louis Cardinals (22-15) will send 1B Matt Carpenter to right field against the San Francisco Giants (18-19), looking to regain some of the lost production from Beltran's absence.

Carpenter has hit an impressive .273/.340/.523 with 3 home runs so far in the 2012 season, while filling in for 1B Lance Berkman and now Beltran.
