ST. LOUIS (AP) – Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina was sent for medical tests for a knee injury and did not play Saturday against the Marlins. Manager Mike Matheny said the knee began bothering Molina on Friday night.
Molina has played in 81 of St. Louis’ 86 games and leads the National League with a .346 average and has six homers and 45 RBIs. Backup Tony Cruz made his eighth start of the season and first since June 26.
