ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Corey Hart was back in the Milwaukee Brewers' lineup after missing one start with a bruised left hand from getting hit by a pitch.

Manager Ron Roenicke altered his lineup to get Hart back in the leadoff spot. Nyjer Morgan had been batting leadoff in the original lineup followed by Felipe Lopez and the new lineup had Morgan batting second with Lopez moving to seventh.

The odd man out for the NL Central-leading Brewers was Mark Kotsay. The Brewers had a three-game lead entering a three-game series with the second-place Cardinals.

Hart was hurt on Saturday and sat out Sunday's 7-3 victory at Houston.
