CHICAGO (AP) — First baseman Matt Adams and third baseman Matt Carpenter returned to the St. Louis Cardinals' lineup against the Chicago Cubs Monday night after each missing two games because of a stomach virus.

Nearly half the Cardinals' players and coaches have been affected by the virus in recent days. Assistant batting coach David Bell and pitcher Marco Gonzales were not with the team Monday because of the virus.

The NL Central-leading Cardinals at least had two important parts of their lineup back, with Carpenter leading off and Adams batting sixth.
