(BaseballStL) -- The Cardinals and Red Sox will roll out familiar lineups for Game 4, but with a little twist to each.

The Cardinals will give Daniel Descalso the nod at shortstop and will bat eighth against the right-handed Clay Buchholz. Also, Jon Jay will move up in the order to bat sixth with David Freese, who posted a .178 average this postseason, moving to the seventh slot.

For the Red Sox, a change will come at the catcher position as David Ross will catch Buchholz instead of Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who has struck out in 19 of 32 at-bats this postseason. Ross will bat eighth.

Update: Shane Victorino was removed from the announced Game 4 lineup shortly before the start of the game due to lower back tightness.

Here are the full lineups:


1. Matt Carpenter, 2B
2. Carlos Beltran, RF
3. Matt Holliday, LF
4. Matt Adams, 1B
5. Yadier Molina, C
6. Jon Jay, CF
7. David Freese, 3B
