Thursday's Mets-Cards lineups

NEW YORK -- Here are the lineups for the Mets' 1:10 p.m. game Thursday against the St. Louis Cardinals. The forecast is for heavy downpours, but the game has yet to be called.

Terry Collins plans to use the same Nos. 1-8 lineup for the third straight day. It would only be the second time in his three-year managerial tenure the Mets had the same lineup three games in a row, joining April 23-26, 2011.
