Allen Craig is part of a revised St. Louis Cardinals lineup for
Game 5 of the World Series and playing first base for the first
time in the postseason.
Craig was inserted in place of Matt Adams and batting sixth in a
straight switch against Red Sox left-hander Jon Lester about two
hours before the first pitch Monday night.
Craig hasn't played defensively since Sept. 4 when he sprained a
ligament in his left foot. He scored the winning run in Game 3 on
an obstruction call.
