X-rays came back negative: via @cardinals — Jenifer Langosch (@LangoschMLB) August 14, 2013 Matt Holliday exited in the 10th inning of Tuesday night's 4-3, 14-inning walk-off victory over the Pirates. Holliday reached on a walk and extended a few steps toward second during Rob Johnson's at-bat. He cut hard on his right ankle to retreat back to first when pitcher Vin Mazzaro threw over. Holliday reached second on a throwing error before pitcher Joe Kelly replaced him as a pinch-runner. "All I could go off of was how he was moving from first to second, it looked like he was really favoring it and didn't want to take a chance," Matheny said. "Who would have thought that spot [in the lineup] would come around that many more times and be in that big a situation?" Holliday was unavailable postgame. Before leaving the game, Holliday went 2-for-4 with a walk, extending his hitting streak to a season-high 10 games. He has reached base safely in each of his 18 games since he came off the disabled list with a strained right hamstring. Overall he's hitting .293 with 15 homers and 59 runs batted in.
