Cards' Holliday to have appendectomy
Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday is having an appendectomy a day after hitting a home run in St. Louis' season opener.
The team said in a statement that the surgery is scheduled for Friday in St. Louis. They didn't say how long Holliday will be sidelined.
He was 3 for 4 and hit a go-ahead home run in the eighth inning of Thursday's 5-3, 11-inning loss to the San Diego Padres.
