The I-70 series heads to the other side of the state.

Boy, when things happen, they are certainly happening.

Lorenzo Cain gets put on the disabled list, and then we get hit with the news that Kendrys Morales is going to play right field. I'm gonna go ahead and guess that Jarrod Dyson will be constantly shaded toward right tonight.

On the other hand,

"[H]e's zipping toward everything -- balls in the gap, balls in the corner, over his head," Kuntz said. "I couldn't believe it. He's not Lorenzo Cain, but he's better than decent."

I'm not here to challenge Rusty Kuntz. "He" in that quote is Kendrys Morales, who last logged an outfield inning in 2008. Eight years ago. Hopefully Edinson Volquez has his best stuff tonight.

Lineups:

I almost barfed looking for the Cardinals lineup tbh.
