Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday did not return to the field in the top of the ninth inning of Saturday's 3-0 win against the Rockies after appearing to step awkwardly on first base on a groundout to end the eighth inning. After the game, manager Mike Matheny said that removing Holliday was just precautionary and his status is day-to-day.

"He just turned it a little as he was going through," Matheny noted. "He said he was OK."

Holliday was replaced for the final frame of Adam Wainwright's two-hit gem by Shane Robinson.

Before his apparent baserunning mishap, Holliday scored the Cardinals' third run of the game following a single. He went 2-for-5 on the day.
