Already down one corner outfielder, the Cardinals lost another on Tuesday, as Matt Holliday was forced out of St. Louis' 5-1 win over the Mets due to lower back tightness in the seventh inning. However, it does not appear as if Holliday will be sidelined for a substantial amount of time.
Manager Mike Matheny said he became concerned that Holliday wasn't right while observing Holliday's body language after the outfielder drew a seventh-inning walk.
"Once he got to first base, he was kind of being ginger with it and doing a little extra stretching," Matheny said. "I knew there was something going on there."
