Second baseman Tyler Greene was back in the lineup after going 3-for-3, including a double and triple, in Tuesday's 7-6 victory over the Chicago Cubs. "Our other two options at second base are left-handed and you want to keep something positive going," Matheny said.
Catcher Yadier Molina got a day off after playing four games over the past five days.
First baseman Lance Berkman returned to the lineup after skipping Tuesday's game. He came off the disabled list (left calf strain) Sunday.
