Dodgers Vs. Cardinals: Hanley Ramirez Batting 5th, Playing Third Base

The Los Angeles Dodgers look to rebound from Tuesday's loss as they battle the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday night at Busch Stadium. But the Dodgers' lineup got a boost on Wednesday with the addition of Hanley Ramirez, who was traded by the Miami Marlins. Ramirez is starting for the Dodgers on Wednesday and playing third base.

Ramirez, hitting .246/.322/.438 with 14 home runs on the year, is hitting fifth for the Dodgers on Wednesday night. Earlier Wednesday manager Don Mattingly made it clear where he thought Ramirez should hit.

"I look at him more as a middle of the order guy," Mattingly said.

Here are the starting lineups from Busch Stadium, the third game of a four-game series.

Abreu LF
Ellis 2B
Kemp CF
Ethier RF
Ramirez 3B
