The Marlins will be without their No. 3 and No. 4 hitters when they wrap up their 11-game homestead Thursday afternoon against the Cardinals.
Manager Fredi Gonzalez has given shortstop Hanley Ramirez and first baseman Jorge Cantu the day off. Ramirez is still battling a sore left groin. Cantu left Wednesday's game with dizziness, a result of cholesterol medication he's no longer taking.
Wes Helms will start at third and bat third. Emilio Bonifacio will slide over to short. Here's the lineup:
Marlins lineup: Chris Coghlan, LF; Bonifacio, SS; Helms 3B, Hermida RF; Uggla 2B; Gload 1B; Ross CF; Paulino C; Miller LHP
