Cardinals Lineup: Schumaker, Descalso Get Stars On Memorial Day

With the St. Louis Cardinals battling a host of injury to many of its key position players, manager Mike Matheny has had to do enough mixing and matching to make old Cards skipper Tony La Russa proud. WIth the Cards suffering a bit of a slump lately, Matheny has tried various combinations of outfielders and infielders, and with the Cardinals playing an early game on Memorial Day, his lineup today features a few subs.

That includes Daniel Descalso, who gets the start for David Freese, and Skip Schumaker, who gets the start at CF, where the Cardinals have missed starter Jon Jay.

Here is Monday's lineup for St. Louis' opening series game vs. the Atlanta Braves:

  1. Rafael Furcal, SS
  2. Skip Schumaker, CF
  3. Matt Holliday, LF
  4. Carlos Beltran, RF
  5. Matt Adams, 1B
  6. Yadier Molina, C
  7. Daniel Descalso, 3B
  8. Tyler Greene, 2B
  9. Lance Lynn, SP
