Cardinals Vs. Astros Lineups: Houston Tries Again Against Lance Lynn

On a relative streak of success, the Houston Astros welcome the St. Louis Cardinals, who currently hold the final NL wild card spot, to Houston on Monday night.

The Astros are 5-5 in their last ten games, but look to keep it rolling against Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn (16-7, 3.79 ERA). Houston faced Lynn last Wednesday in St. Louis with no success -- the Astros managed just three hits in 6-1/3 innings against Lynn, and suffered a 5-0 shutout loss.

Houston counters Lynn with left-hander Fernando Abad (0-5, 5.11), who has given up four runs in seven innings of work this season against the Cardinals. Here are the rest of tonight's lineups:

CARDINALS (82-71)

1. Jon Jay CF
2. Carlos Beltran RF
3. Matt Holliday LF
4. Allen Craig 1B
5. Yadier Molina C
6. David Freese 3B
7. Daniel Descalso 2B
8. Pete Kozma SS
9. Lance Lynn P (16-7, 3.79 ERA)

ASTROS (50-103)

1. Jed Lowrie SS
2. Scott Moore RF
3. Brett Wallace 1B
4. Justin Maxwell CF
5. Fernando Martinez LF
