Matt Holliday back from appendectomy
Holliday is batting in his usual cleanup spot against the Giants on Sunday. He had played in only one game this year, going 3 for 4 with a home run in the team's season-opening loss to San Diego.
The Cardinals had lost three straight games and were 2-6 this season, their worst start since 1997.
