ST. LOUIS (AP) - Allen Craig is part of a revised St. Louis Cardinals lineup for Game 5 of the World Series and playing first base for the first time in the postseason.

Craig was inserted in place of Matt Adams and batting sixth in a straight switch against Red Sox left-hander Jon Lester about two hours before the first pitch Monday night.

Craig hasn’t played defensively since Sept. 4 when he sprained a ligament in his left foot. He scored the winning run in Game 3 on an obstruction call.
