Here are the lineups for Game 1 of the NLCS between the Giants and Cardinals. Expected first pitch at Busch Stadium is 8:07 p.m. ET:

Giants:
CF Gregor Blanco
2B Joe Panik
C Buster Posey
3B Pablo Sandoval

Giants manager Bruce Bochy has flip-flopped Hunter Pence and Pablo Sandoval in the order with a right-hander on the mound for St. Louis. Travis Ishikawa is back in left field after Juan Perez made the start in Game 4 of the NLDS against the Nationals. Michael Morse is available off the bench.

Cardinals:
3B Matt Carpenter
RF Randal Grichuk
LF Matt Holliday
SS Jhonny Peralta
1B Matt Adams

CF Jon Jay
2B Kolten Wong
SP Adam Wainwright

This is the same lineup Mike Matheny used for the final two games of the NLDS against the Dodgers, with Randal Grichuk in right field and Kolten Wong at second base.

Longtime Angels and Cardinals outfielder Jim Edmonds shared on his Instagram story that he is being tested for coronavirus.

The four-time All-Star, who now works as a broadcaster for Fox Sports Midwest, has not posted an update on the results of his test.

If you want to learn more about COVID-19 or think you might need to be tested, give the CDC’s site about the virus a read. Informing yourself is the most important step. Washing your hands and staying home, if possible, is the best way to protect yourself.
