ST. LOUIS (AP) The St. Louis Cardinals scratched second baseman Kolten Wong from the lineup against the Chicago Cubs because of calf tightness.
Matt Carpenter moved from third base to second base. Mark Reynolds started at third base batting eighth, with Jon Jay moving up a spot to seventh.
Wong is hitting .265 with 11 homers and 55 RBIs for the NL Central leaders. He is available off the bench for Monday's game.
