Cardinals Vs. Royals: Saturday Lineups

Adam Wainwright and Luis Mendoza square off for the second time in less than a week on Saturday, as the Kansas City Royals play host to the St. Louis Cardinals.

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

SS Rafael Furcal
CF Jon Jay
DH Matt Holliday
RF Carlos Beltran
1B Allen Craig
3B David Freese
LF Matt Carpenter
C Tony Cruz
2B Daniel Descalso

SP Adam Wainwright

Kansas City Royals

LF Alex Gordon
2B Yuniesky Betancourt
DH Billy Butler
1B Eric Hosmer
RF Jeff Francoeur
3B Mike Moustakas
SS Alcides Escobar
CF Jarrod Dyson
C Humberto Quintero

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.
