ST. LOUIS (AP) - Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday left Saturday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the fifth inning after appearing to get hurt.
Holliday was shaken up while diving back into second base on a pickoff attempt in the first inning after his two-run single. Holliday seemed to hit his head on the glove of shortstop Hanley Ramirez. Holliday remained on the ground for a minute, but stayed in until Peter Bourjos pinch hit for him in the fifth.
St. Louis said Holliday was removed as a precaution. A spokesman said a concussion was ruled out by a team physician.
