 ATLANTA (AP) - The St. Louis Cardinals are carrying 10 pitchers, one more than the Braves, on their 25-man roster for their NL wild-card game against Atlanta.
Kyle Lohse is starting Friday. Manager Mike Matheny has only one other starting pitcher, Lance Lynn, active for the game. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez has three starting pitchers on his roster.
The Cardinals are carrying three catchers, with Bryan Anderson and Tony Cruz available behind starter Yadier Molina.
Marc Rzepczynski and Sam Freeman are the only left-handers in the Cardinals' bullpen.
Matheny is sticking with second baseman Daniel Descalso and shortstop Pete Kozma as his starting middle-infield combination.
Winning teams in the wild-card games can reset their rosters for the division series.
