The St. Louis Cardinals lineup has been set for Game 4 of the NLCS today. A.J. Pierzynski gets the start again at catcher with Molina still out with an oblique injury.
All-Star catcher Yadier Molina and his oblique injury from Game 2 was available during yesterday’s Game 3 matchup. Prior to Game 3 Molina said, “I feel better than yesterday, but still, this is painful, but I’m trying to do my best. The medical staff and trainers are doing their best to get me back onto the field.”
Today, Molina will receive a cortisone shot before Game 4 and attempt swinging the bat in pre-game warm-ups. He looks to be available again off the bench.
