Cardinals slugger Matt Holliday leaves after hit by pitch
CHICAGO (AP) St. Louis Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday has left in the 10th inning against the Chicago Cubs after getting hit on the right hand by a pitch.
Reliever Mike Montgomery plunked the seven-time All-Star with a 94 mph fastball on a 1-1 count with two outs and nobody on in a 3-3 game Thursday night. Holliday immediately grabbed his right arm. He was attended to and walked to first base accompanied by the trainer before leaving the field.
Jeremy Hazelbaker pinch-ran for Holliday, who had singled and scored in the first inning.
