Mike Matheny's Game 4 lineup looks familiar

With right-hander Ross Detwiler starting for the Washington Nationals, St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny has posted his lineup for Game 4 of the clubs' National League Division Series:

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. Kyle Lohse - P

This is essentially Matheny's standard lineup, perhaps distinguished by the fact that Carlos Beltran, who hit 32 home runs during the regular season and hit two more in Game 2 of this series, is in the No. 2 slot. The bottom third of the order is unimpressive, unless you really believe that Kozma somehow became a good hitter the moment the Cardinals installed him as their every-day shortstop, a month ago.
