Tommy Edman leading off NLCS Game 4 for Cardinals

St. Louis Cardinals infielder/outfielder Tommy Edman is starting Game 4 of the National League Championship Series versus left-hander Patrick Corbin and the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night.

What It Means:

Edman had been hitting seventh this postseason, going 6-for-29 (.207) with 4 extra-base hits and 6 strikeouts, but the Cardinals are shaking up the order a bit Tuesday against a lefty. Jose Martinez is hitting second after hitting fifth last game. Yadier Molina and Paul DeJong are lined up fifth and sixth, respectively. Kolten Wong has dropped from second to eighth. St. Louis is down 3-0 in the series.

numberFire's models project Edman for 10.9 FanDuel points in Game 3, at a cost of $2,900. The Cardinals are road underdogs with an implied total of 3.33 runs.
