ST. LOUIS — Shane Victorino’s back has still not cooperated enough to get back in the lineup for Game 5.

The outfielder — who told WEEI.com after Game 4 “this is probably the worst it’s been in a while” — was hopeful he could make a return, but was having trouble executing particular baseball activities as of late Sunday night. Victorino will once again be replaced in right field by Daniel Nava, with Jonny Gomes staying  in left.

The only difference from the Sox’ Game 5 lineup is that Nava won’t be hitting second, with Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz and Gomes moving up a spot against St. Louis starter Adam Wainwright.

The following is the Red Sox lineup:

Jacoby Ellsbury CF

Dustin Pedroia 2B

David Ortiz 1B

Jonny Gomes LF

Daniel Nava RF

Xander Bogaerts 3B

Stephen Drew SS

David Ross C

Jon Lester P
