Holliday is hitting .319 with two home runs, eight RBI and six runs scored this month. His final line will end up looking Holliday-esque after a slow start to the year.

Matt Holliday was removed from Wednesday's game against the Marlins after his left knee "flared up."

Holliday was removed in the seventh inning, something Cardinals manager Mike Matheny has been wont to do when nursing a lead in the late innings, so it went largely unnoticed until after the game. After the game, Holliday said it wasn't a big deal and that he expects to play Thursday.
