Matt Holliday leaves game after re-injuring his right quad

Some awful news here for the first-place St. Louis Cardinals …

Holliday just spent six weeks on the disabled list with the very same injury. He re-injured it Wednesday night at Busch Stadium while chugging down the first base line on what would have been an infield single, and it seems very possible that the 35-year-old is now done for the remainder of the season. Stephen Piscotty entered Wednesday’s game in left field and could be the everyday guy there down the stretch for the Cardinals. It’s now even more imperative that St. Louis general manager John Mozeliak secures a first baseman before the July 31 trade deadline. There’s been some connection to the Brewers’ Adam Lind.

Wednesday night’s game at PNC Park between the Brewers and Pirates has been postponed, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. No makeup date has been announced yet. As Brink points out, the two clubs meet again in Pittsburgh September 21-23 and both have an off day on the 20th, so that could be a potential makeup date.

Brent Suter and Chad Kuhl were scheduled to square off on the mound. Their starts will likely be pushed back to Thursday. The Pirates will host the Diamondbacks and the Brewers will host the Cardinals.

The Cubs won on Wednesday afternoon, so the Brewers are tied with the Cubs for first place in the NL Central. The Pirates are seven games back in third place.
