Cardinals Vs. Royals Lineup: Jon Jay Sitting On Sunday

The St. Louis Cardinals have been crushing the ball this weekend in Kansas City, and with one notable exception, the lineup that has produced those runs will more or less be intact in the series' final game. That exception would be St. Louis centerfielder Jon Jay, who will take the day off today as he eases his way back from the DL. Jay will also avoid tough lefty Jonathan Sanchez.

Here are the lineups for both teams heading into today's game:

Cardinals

  1. Rafael Furcal, SS
  2. Allen Craig, RF
  3. Matt Holliday, LF
  4. Carlos Beltran, DH
  5. David Freese, 3B
  6. Yadier Molina, C
  7. Matt Carpenter, 1B
  8. Shane Robinson, CF
  9. Daniel Descalso, 2B

Royals

  1. Alex Gordon, LF
  2. Irving Falu, 2B
  3. Mike Moustakas, 3B
  4. Billy Butler, 1B
  5. Jeff Francoeur, RF
  6. Brayan Pena, DH
  7. Salvador Perez, C
  8. Jarrod Dyson, CF
