Holliday, Furcal back in Cardinals’ lineup
Matt Holliday is back in the St. Louis Cardinals’ lineup after
missing nine games with a tendon injury on his right middle
He rejoins a St. Louis team that entered the day trailing
Atlanta by three games in the NL wild-card race with five games
Rafael Furcal also returned for Saturday’s game against the
Chicago Cubs after sitting out one game. The shortstop committed
five errors in his last six games, and mishandled a potential
double play ball that launched the New York Mets’ six-run ninth in
St. Louis’ 8-6 loss on Thursday.
Holliday was batting fifth instead of cleanup for the first
time, hitting behind Lance Berkman.
