Both teams made significant lineup changes for Game 4. The Red Sox adjusted because of Shane Victorino sitting out a second straight game, dropping Daniel Nava and bumping up the heart of the order. The Cardinals adjusted because of lefty Jon Lester, moving Shane Robinson into the No. 2 spot and dropping Carlos Beltran to be their cleanup hitter.

GIVING IT A SHOT: Allen Craig hasn’t played the field in more than a month, and he looked awful trying to run the bases last night, but he’s going to try to play first base tonight. That’s another adjustment to Lester.

PEAVY PROBABLE: John Farrell announced pregame that Jake Peavy is the Red Sox projected Game 7 starter, with Clay Buchholz possibly available as a reliever should the series go that long.
