The St. Louis Cardinals are going with a different lineup with their season on the line Tuesday against the Washington Nationals in Game 4 of the NLCS.

The Cards made six changes to their batting order. Among those changes, Harrison Bader will hit seventh and play center field instead of Dexter Fowler, according to Anne Rogers of MLB.com.

Here is the Game 4 lineup:

Batting order Player Position
1 Tommy Edman 3B
2 Jose Martinez RF
3 Paul Goldschmidt 1B
4 Marcell Ozuna LF
5 Yadier Molina C
6 Paul DeJong SS
7 Harrison Bader CF
8 Kolten Wong 2B
9 Dakota Hudson P

This is the lineup that St. Louis went with in Game 3:

Batting order Player Position
1 Dexter Fowler CF
2 Kolten Wong 2B
3 Paul Goldschmidt 1B
4 Marcell Ozuna LF
5 Jose Martinez RF
6 Yadier Molina C
7 Tommy Edman 3B
8 Paul DeJong SS
9 Jack Flaherty P

The Cardinals are on the verge of being swept after only scoring two runs in three contests against the Nationals.

History is not on St. Louis' side as a series has gone six games only three times after a team has gone down 3-0. The 2004 Boston Red Sox are the only squad in MLB history to win a best of seven after dropping the first three contests.
