(BaseballStL) -- St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny has opted to start Oscar Taveras, who was recently recalled from Memphis, in right field and move Allen Craig over to left, bumping Matt Holliday out of the lineup.

In his previous stint with the Redbirds, Taveras hit a home run in his first MLB at-bat, but batted just .189 the rest of the way with seven hits, two RBI and seven strike outs.

But with the Cardinals inability to score runs consistently, Matheny has shook up the lineup in the series opener against the Giants in San Francisco.

Tuesday's Cardinals lineup:

Carpenter 3B

Taveras RF

Peralta SS

Adams 1B

Molina C

Craig LF

Jay CF

Descalso 2B

Marco Gonzalez LHP
