MLB roundup: Craig in Cardinals' lineup for Gasme 5

The SportsXchange

Allen Craig was a late addition to the St. Louis Cardinals' starting lineup for Monday's Game 5 of the World Series.

Craig, who appeared in Sunday's game only as a pinch-hitter, tested his injured foot before Monday's game. He struggled, and manager Mike Matheny posted a lineup card with Craig on the bench and Matt Adams starting at first base.

But less than two hours later, Matheny announced a change, with Craig in the starting lineup at first base and Adams on the bench.

---Boston Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino is not in the starting lineup for Game 5 because of lower back tightness. Victorino also missed Sunday's game due to the injury.

Taking his place in the lineup for the second straight game is Jonny Gomes, who is batting fourth and playing left field. Daniel Nava is moving from left field to Victorino's place in right field.

---The Detroit Tigers plan to interview San Diego Padres executive Brad Ausmus and bench coach Rick Renteria for their managerial job, CBSSports.com reported.

--The Tigers confirmed that third baseman Miguel Cabrera will undergo surgery on Tuesday to repair his injured groin.
