Another Cardinal, starting catcher and defensive ace Yadier Molina was run over on a play at the plate and taken off the field on a stretcher, complaining of neck and back pain. Molina was taken to the hospital but assured fellow injured Card Albert Pujols that he would be okay. Molina was diagnosed with a mild concussion and it appears he will be able to avoid a trip to the DL as long as no issues arise in the next few days. The collision did not appear to be malicious and one would hope that no retaliation follows in the next meeting between the Phillies and Cardinals.
