Carlos Martinez vs. Aaron Harang

Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

The St. Louis Cardinals face the Philadelpha Phillies this evening at Busch Stadium. The game is on Fox Sports Midwest and ESPN. Manager Mike Matheny has constructed a lineup that will give its eighth-most-talented hitter the most plate appearances because of that player's individual splits against Philadelphia starting pitcher Aaron Harang. If my memory serves me correctly, the last time Matheny made a lineup decision based on a player's head-to-head performance against the opposing starter, Pete Kozma started at second base in Game 1 of the 2014 NLDS.

The Cardinals lineup:

  1. Peter Bourjos, CF
  2. Matt Carpenter, 3B
  3. Matt Holliday, LF
  4. Matt Adams, 1B
  5. Jhonny Peralta, SS
  6. Jason Heyward, RF
  7. Yadier Molina, C
  8. Kolten Wong, 2B
  9. Carlos Martinez, P

The Phillies lineup:

  1. Ben Revere, CF
  2. Odubel Herrera, CF
  3. Chase Utley, 2B
  4. Jeff Francoeur, RF
  5. Ryan Howard, 1B
  6. Cody Asche, 3B
  7. Carlos Ruiz, C
  8. Freddy Galvis, SS
  9. Harang, P
