One of the surprises - I guess the only surprise - in the Cardinals' starting lineup for this game was that Skip Schumaker was starting over Jon Jay in center field, with Nick Punto coming in to play second base. And the move paid immediate dividends when, in the top of the first, Schumaker worked a long at bat and ripped an RBI double off Roy Halladay to give St. Louis a quick edge.
But now the Cardinals will have to play the rest of the way without Schumaker, because in the middle of the third inning, he left the dugout with a trainer, and Jay took over in the outfield. Schumaker was walking under his own power and it's unclear what's wrong, but it's worth noting he flew out in the top of the frame. Maybe that isn't worth noting. I literally have no idea what the matter is, except that he isn't suffering from armlessness or anything. Nothing was visibly wrong.
Jay is a fine player and this shouldn't be much of a setback, but La Russa wanted Schumaker, and now he doesn't have Schumaker. Raspberries.
