Cardinals' Yadier Molina gets three hits Monday, average over .300
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina had three hits in five at-bats in Monday's loss to the Mets. Molina, who has gotten off to a rather slow start at the plate, is riding a modest five-game hitting streak. He is 10 for 21 over that stretch and has lifted his season average from .277 to .302 with the hot streak. It's the first time since mid-April that Molina's average been above the .300 mark. 

Molina also caught all 14 innings of Monday's extra-inning affair, and has started all but one of the team's 17 games this month.

It remains to be seen if manager Mike Matheny gives Molina the day off on Tuesday. The veteran backstop does have a lifetime .375 batting average (6 for 16) with a home run against Jonathon Niese, who is slated to start for the Mets on Tuesday.

Cardinals C Yadier Molina back in lineup, OF Jon Jay out vs. Indians
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina returned to the starting lineup Wednesday night against Cleveland, after exiting Tuesday with back stiffness. Jon Jay, however, remained sidelined with a thumb injury he suffered Saturday, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Molina finished 2 for 4 and scored a run before being lifted for a pinch-hitter in the person of backup catcher Tony Cruz. He is hitting .276 (29 for 105) with seven doubles, 15 RBI and a .325 on-base percentage this season.

St. Louis is considered an underdog (+125) against Corey Kluber and the Indians at Progressive Field, per VegasInsider.com.

Cardinals C Yadier Molina exits Tuesday's game with back stiffness
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina was forced to exit Tuesday's game against the Indians in the ninth inning due to back stiffness, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"Yadi tightened up a little bit," manager Mike Matheny told MLB.com. "I don't know if it was the cold or what it was exactly, so we'll have to keep an eye on him."

Molina was 2 for 4 and scored a run before being lifted for a pinch-hitter in the person of backup catcher Tony Cruz. Cruz would likely draw the start on Wednesday if Molina is unable to go.

Cardinals' Yadier Molina has seven-game hit streak, no homers
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina is in the midst of a seven-game hitting streak but has yet to hit a home run this season.

Molina delivered excellent offensive seasons from 2011 through 2013 but saw his numbers dip slightly last year, and the slide has continued in the early part of 2015. He's hit 55 home runs in his last four seasons combined and has a 12-steal season during that stretch but hasn't managed one of either this season.

Even with the dip in his home-run production, Molina hit .391/.417/.522 with five RBI in 23 at-bats last week. He'll look to continue his recent success when the Cardinals open a three-game series against the Indians in Cleveland Tuesday.
