Ready or not, Game 2 of our series with the Cardinals is a day game.

Ross Ohlendorf (3-2, 3.48) @ Todd Wellemeyer (2-2, 5.28), 1:40 P.M., Busch Stadium

Compare today’s starting lineup with the Opening Day lineup.
Today: McLouth, Young, Monroe, Hinske, Moss, An. LaRoche, Diaz, Bixler
Opening Day: Morgan, Sanchez, McLouth, Doumit, LaRoche, LaRoche, Moss, Wilson
Obviously, injuries have played some role in these changes. I’m also guessing that John Russell is trying anything that might help to end this losing skid.

The Pirates only managed 4 hits in the game. Robinzon Diaz went 2 for 3, including a solo homer. The Bucs have now lost 5 in a row.
