Matt Adams has dented the starting lineup for just the second time since coming off the disabled list May 7. He went 2-for-3 with a home run off Milwaukee’s Marco Estrada back in April. Carlos Beltran — 1-for-8 in his career against Estrada — gets the day off. This will be Estrada’s third start of the year against the Cardinals. He lasted only 3 1/3 innings on May 5.

Lance Lynn is coming off a career-high 124-pitch outing earlier in the week. Manager Mike Matheny said that will not hesitate to push Lynn again today, but as we saw with Shelby Miller and Adam Wainwright earlier this week, the leash could very well turn out to be shorter than usual.

  2. Jon Jay (CF)
