Holliday scratched

Matt Holliday was kept out of the Cardinals’ lineup on Friday against the Mets due to illness. Allen Craig was tabbed to start in his place in left field.

Manager Tony La Russa said on Friday afternoon that Holliday wasn’t feeling well on Thursday for the Cardinals’ game against the Astros, but Holliday started the game anyway. However, he was removed from that game in the ninth inning for Joe Mather.
“Yesterday he was not feeling great,” La Russa said. “I tried to give him a day and he said ‘I can go, I can go.’ And he woke up today, he’s just not feeling good. But he’s here at the park.”
Holliday could be available to come off the bench for the Cardinals on Friday’s game.
