Player Notes
Filling in for the injured Yadier Molina (oblique), Tony Cruz ripped a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Giants.

Advice: Cruz's deep blast to left field off of Madison Bumgarner in the fourth inning gave the Cardinals the lead, a lead they held until Michael Morse knotted things up with a homer in the eighth. He also drew a walk in the ninth inning to load the bases, but Oscar Taveras grounded out to end the threat. Matt Adams also went deep for the Cards.

Tony Cruz will start behind the plate for Game 5 of the NLCS against the Giants on Thursday.

Advice: A.J. Pierzynski started behind the plate in Game 4, but Cruz will get the call as the Cardinals try to keep their season alive. In addition, Jhonny Peralta and Matt Adams have flip-flopped in the order. The full lineup: Matt Carpenter 3B, Jon Jay CF, Matt Holliday LF, Peralta SS, Adams 1B, Randal Grichuk RF, Kolten Wong 2B, Cruz C, Adam Wainwright SP.
