While the Cardinals have gotten some good production out of Yadier Molina, Carlos Beltran and Matt Holliday at the top of their order during the World Series, the back of the team's lineup has struggled.
Batters in the sixth through ninth slots in the Cardinals' order have gone a combined 11-for-67 during the five games in the World Series, good for a .164 batting average. Additionally, they have driven in zero runs and have scored five times.
Clearly, those numbers are not going to cut it if St. Louis is going to win the World Series.
The good news for the Cardinals is that they are going to be able to take advantage of the DH in Game 6, which should improve the production from the back end of their lineup slightly.
The Cardinals have also already seen Game 6 starter John Lackey twice this World Series, which should give them some familiarity with him. They tagged him for three runs in their Game 2 victory, and out of the four total runs the team scored that game, three came from the final four slots in the lineup.
If St. Louis is able to get production from the end of its lineup off Lackey in Game 6, it should walk away with a win.
