Saturday is a new day, however, and the Cardinals and Dodgers have posted their lineups for Game 2.
The Cardinals will be putting out the same defensive eight as in Game 1, but with an adjusted batting order. Matt Carpenter, Beltran and Matt Holliday remain atop the lineup, but Yadier Molina is now hitting clean-up with David Freese in the five-spot. The two hit fifth and seventh on Friday, respectively. Matt Adams and Jon Jay each moved down in the order.

The Dodgers have two big changes to their lineup: Andre Ethier will rest his injured foot following his first appearance in the playoffs, and Hanley Ramirez was a last-minute scratch due to bruised ribs. Ramirez sustained the injury when he was hit by a pitch in Game 1. Skip Schumaker will take over in center field, and Nick Punto will start at short.
