SAN DIEGO Outfielder Matt Holliday wasn't afraid to say it. He's concerned.
Despite still clinging to the second wild card spot in the National League, Holliday and the Cardinals have lost 11 out of their last 15 games and were swept during a three-game series in San Diego with a 3-2 loss Wednesday afternoon.
Speaking in a quiet visitors clubhouse after the Cardinals lost despite having the tying run on second base with no outs in the ninth inning, Holliday tried to look for positives in what is quickly becoming a disastrous situation.
"The good news is we're still right there," Holliday said. "If we get back to playing well and playing how we can, we're still right where we want to be. But there is concern obviously with how we're playing."
Stocked with All-Stars and veterans all over the field, the defending World Series Champions continue to find themselves searching for answers for their prolonged stretches of inconsistent and poor play.
And Wednesday was another rough one...
