NLDS Game 2 Lineups

Jenifer Langosch/MLB.com

Both clubs are sticking with the same lineups they used on Sunday, which ended with the Nationals stealing a 3-2 victory over the Cardinals. A word of warning for the Cardinals: Twenty-one times a club has raced out to a 2-0 NLDS lead. And 21 times that team has won the series. That makes Monday’s game as close to a must-win game as a non-elimination game can be.

CARDINALS LINEUP:

  1. Jon Jay (CF)
  2. Carlos Beltran (RF)
  3. Matt Holliday (LF)
  4. Allen Craig (1B)
  5. Yadier Molina (C)
  6. David Freese (3B)
  7. Daniel Descalso (2B)
  8. Pete Kozma (SS)
  9. Jaime Garcia (LHP)

NATIONALS LINEUP:

  1. Jayson Werth (RF)
  2. Bryce Harper (CF)
  3. Ryan Zimmerman (3B)
  4. Adam LaRoche (1B)
  5. Michael Morse (LF)
  6. Ian Desmond (SS)
  7. Danny Espinosa (2B)
  8. Kurt Suzuki (C)
  9. Jordan Zimmermann (RHP)

Hope Matheny has learned that we do not have a good enough lefty for matching batter for batter – best to stay with whichever reliever is doing well in the game and hope for the best.
