Carlos Martinez vs. Brett Anderson

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

The St. Louis Cardinals (32-17) host the Los Angeles Dodgers (29-19) in the rubber match of the teams' three-game series at Busch Stadium. Like the first game of the series, Sunday's pits the two top teams in the National League by winning percentage against one another. With Saturday's win, the Dodgers reclaimed the NL's second-best record and first place in the West, which makes today's a matchup of two first place teams as well.

The Initial Cardinals Lineup:

  1. Randal Grichuk, CF
  2. Matt Carpenter, 3B
  3. Matt Holliday, LF
  4. Jhonny Peralta, SS
  5. Yadier Molina, C
  6. Mark Reynolds, 1B
  7. Jason Heyward, RF
  8. Pete Kozma, 2B
  9. Carlos Martinez, P
But Holliday is apparently still feeling the effects of the bug that kept him out of action on Friday, so manager Mike Matheny scratched the slugger from the St. Louis starting lineup and reshuffled the order a bit Sunday morning.

The Updated Cardinals Lineup:

  1. Peter Bourjos, CF
  2. Matt Carpenter, 3B
  3. Jhonny Peralta, SS

  5. Yadier Molina, C
  6. Mark Reynolds, 1B
  7. Jason heyward, RF
  8. Pete Kozma, 2B
  9. Carlos Martinez, P

The Dodgers Lineup:

  1. Joc Pederson, CF
