Today's Lineups

ST. LOUIS CARDINALS MIAMI MARLINS
Kolten Wong - 2B Dee Gordon - 2B
Randal Grichuk - RF Christian Yelich - CF
Matt Carpenter - 1B Marcell Ozuna - LF
Jedd Gyorko - 3B Giancarlo Stanton - RF
Yadier Molina - C Justin Bour - 1B
Aledmys Diaz - SS J.T. Realmuto - C
Tommy Pham - LF Derek Dietrich - 3B
Magneuris Sierra - CF Adeiny Hechavarria - SS
Carlos Martinez - RHP Adam Conley - LHP

Dietrich in at third base for the injured Prado, batting 7th. Mattingly seems to have taken a shine to the Yelich-Ozuna 2-3 combo, and you could certainly do worse than having your best all-around hitter and your best hitter this season sandwiched together at the top of the lineup where they will get the most ABs and do the most damage.

Thread Question:

How often would you like to see JT Riddle play this second go-round?
