Berkman returns to the lineup in Chicago

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (BaseballStL) -- Lance Berkman returned to the lineup for the first time since being hit by a pitch during Tuesday’s game.

Berkman missed two games after taking an 84 mph slider to his right knee which was surgically repaired in May. 

In other news, David Freese and Carlos Beltran were not in the starting lineup Friday.  Freese left Thursday’s game early with a “calf cramp.”  Beltran told reporters he is not dealing with any injury, but manager Mike Matheny wanted to give him back-to-back days off.
