The St. Louis Cardinals have won the first two games of their three-game set against the Pittsburgh Pirates in extra-inning walk-off fashion. Today at Busch Stadium, the first-place Redbirds go for the sweep. They will do so with Kolten Wong on the bench. It appears that they may also be doing so with Sam Tuivailala in the bullpen and setup man Jordan Walden, who is experiencing shoulder "stiffness," on the DL.

The Cardinals lineup:

  1. Jon Jay, 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. Pete Kozma, 2B
  9. Michael Wacha, P

The Pirates lineup:

  1. Gregory Polanco, RF
  2. Matt Harrison, 2B
  3. Andrew McCutchen, CF
  4. Starling Marte, LF
  5. Pedro Alvarez, 1B
  6. Jody Mercer, SS
  7. Jung Ho Kang, 3B
  8. Chris Stewart, C
  9. Vance Worley, P
