Cardinals C Molina out of lineup after collision

Posted: Updated:
ST. LOUIS -

the St. Louis Cardinals held catcher Yadier Molina out of the lineup on Wednesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates a day after injuring his back, neck and shoulder in a violent home plate collision with Pittsburgh second baseman Josh Harrison.
 
Molina left Tuesday night's 9-0 loss at the end of the second inning after Harrison bowled him over while trying to score from second on a single to right field by Jose Tabata. Harrison's left shoulder slammed into Molina's helmet, sending Molina tumbling to the ground.
 
Tony Cruz caught the rest of the game and started in place of Molina on Wednesday. The team also recalled catcher Bryan Anderson from Triple-A Memphis as insurance. Molina is listed as day-to-day. The Cardinals travel to Washington to begin a four-game series on Thursday.
