It turns out that today is Thursday, not yesterday, as in my brain. That means the series finale between the St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs is today at Busch Stadium. It's a getaway game even though yesterday's righty-heavy lineup against lefty Chicago ace Jon Lester resembled one of the getaway-day variety. Today's makes yesterday's a bit less getaway-like in appearance. Every J(h)o(h)n is in today's starting lineup.

The Cardinals Lineup:

  1. Jon Jay, LF
  2. Kolten Wong, 2B
  3. Jhonny Peralta, SS
  4. Matt Adams, 1B
  5. Mark Reynolds, 3B
  6. Jason Heyward, RF
  7. Yadier Molina, C
  8. Peter Bourjos, CF
  9. John Lackey, P

The Cubs Lineup:

  1. Chris Coghlan, LF
  2. Kris Bryant, 3B
  3. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
  4. Miguel Montero, C
  5. Jorge Soler, RF
  6. Starlin Castro, SS
  7. Matt Szczur, CF
  8. Jake Arrieta, P
  9. Addison Russell, 2B
