St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Paul Goldschmidt was a late scratch from Thursday’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers for precautionary reasons due to lower-back tightness.

Matt Carpenter started at first base in his place.

Goldschmidt is batting .308/.357/.385 in six games with six runs scored and two RBIs. He’s still looking for his first home run.
