Neither Mendoza or Wainwright factored into the decision last Sunday, but both pitch effectively in a game that Kansas City ultimately won in extra innings.
Both Mike Matheny and Ned Yost have announced the starting lineups for Saturday's game, and they are as follows:
St. Louis Cardinals
SP Adam Wainwright
Kansas City Royals
SP Luis Mendoza
Yadier Molina gets the day off for the Cardinals, as Tony Cruz will be behind the dish catching Wainwright. We'll see if Kansas City tries to take advantage of that fact on the basepaths.
