Dodgers Vs. Cardinals Starting Lineups: Shane Victorino Back To Leadoff

The Los Angeles Dodgers look for their third straight win on Sunday afternoon as they host the St. Louis Cardinals in the finale of a four-game series at Dodger Stadium. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly changed up his lineup again, moving Shane Victorino back to leadoff.

Victorino batted leadoff after getting traded to the Dodgers, but after struggling was moved to second, then sixth, especially against right-handed pitchers, earlier this week. But on Sunday Mattingly moved leadoff man Mark Ellis down to seventh and put Victorino batting first, with Andre Ethier hitting second against Adam Wainwright of the Cardinals.

Here are Sunday's starting lineups, with the winner assuming the lead in the battle for the second wild card in the National League:
