The St. Louis Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Pirates have announced their starting lineups for Game 2 of the NLDS.

Pittsburgh's offical Twitter account brings us the Pirates starting nine:

The Cardinals will use the exact same lineup that scored seven runs against the Pirates during the third inning of Thursday's game, with Lance Lynn starting at pitcher. The team's official Twitter account brings us the Cardinals batting order.
