Adams went 1-for-6 with a walk and a walk-off solo shot in the bottom of the 16th inning to down the Dodgers 4-3 Friday night.

EDGE Analysis

Adams' batting average dropped three points to .261 -- its lowest point since May 3 -- but he made the most of his only hit in seven plate appearances during the marathon. It was the first baseman's 11th homer of the season, and the second career 16th-inning walk-off blast for Adams. The 27-year-old has struggled mightily in July, slashing .159/.213/.386 through 44 at-bats.

Adams is out of the lineup for Monday's series opener with the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

Adams is hitting .264 with 10 home runs and 37 RBI on the season but will get the night off with southpaw Christian Friedrich on the mound for San Diego. The Cardinals will slide Matt Holliday to first base and insert Tommy Pham into the lineup in order to get as many right-handed hitters in the game as possible.

Adams is out of the lineup Sunday against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Adams got the starting nod Saturday, but Sunday will mark the second time this series that he's been rested in favor of Matt Holliday at first base. There's no need to fret, however, as each of those days off will have come against an opposing left-hander. In Sunday's case, it will be southpaw Adam Conley taking the hill for the Marlins.

Adams is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

The 27-year-old will ride the pine with a lefty in Wei-Yin Chen due up for Miami, as is standard whenever the Cardinals face a southpaw. Adams' performance against right-handers has gradually declined over the past six weeks or so, culminating in an 0-for-29 spell just before the break, and his opportunities have dried up as a result. Matt Holliday and Jedd Gyorko will likely continue to eat into his time at first base.

Adams is out of the lineup Monday against the Pirates, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

EDGE Analysis

Adams finds himself on the bench for the third straight game with the Pirates bringing lefty Jon Niese to the hill. Due to the Cardinals' bevy of options at first base, Adams also occasionally loses out on starts against opposing right-handed pitchers, making him a more useful option in DFS than in season-long formats.

Adams is out of the lineup Sunday against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

For two days in a row, the Cardinals have faced a right-handed pitcher, but Adams will have now sat for each of those contests. This is a bit of an uncharacteristic pattern, and although no injuries have been disclosed, a recent 3-for-30 slump may have something to do with the absence. Brandon Moss will take over at first base for the Sunday afternoon contest.
