The St. Louis Cardinals square off against the Chicago Cubs at a bleacherless Wrigley Field in a regular season baseball game tonight on ESPN 2.

The Cardinals lineup:

  1. Carpenter, 3B
  2. Heyward, RF
  3. Holliday, LF
  4. Peralta, SS
  5. Adams, 1B
  6. Molina, C
  7. Wong, 2B
  8. Jay, CF
  9. Wainwright, P
  1. Fowler, CF
  2. Soler, RF
  3. Rizzo, 1B
  4. Castro, SS
  5. Coghlan, LF
  6. Olt, 3B
  7. Ross, C
  8. Lester, P
  9. La Stella, 2B
So I was wrong in my series preview. Olt over La Stella at third and La Stella at second. Also, the former Boston backstop David Ross will catch the former Boston ace Jon Lester.
