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

INJURY REPORT: Matt Holliday left today’s game with a strained right quad. Will be re-evaluated tomorrow.

— St. Louis Cardinals (@Cardinals) July 30, 2015

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.
