Manager Tony La Russa announced that Cardinals starting pitcher Kyle McClellan will miss his next start and maybe more, because of soreness in his left hip.
McClellan felt pain after delivering a pitch in the first inning of Monday’s game where he allowed a career high seven runs in four innings, for his shortest outing as a starter.
Left fielder Matt Holliday was a late scratch from Tuesday’s as he continues to deal with discomfort in his left quadriceps. Holliday pinch hit in the fifth inning and struck out on three pitches.
He is batting .342 with six homers and 31 RBIs. After the game, manager Tony La Russa was unsure of Holliday’s status moving forward.
