The Cardinals clubhouse—via the St. Louis Post Dispatch—listed a left thigh contusion as the reason for pulling Holliday from the lineup.
Holliday had just extended his hitting streak to 15 games last night. He drove home the game-tying runs in the ninth inning off of Brewers closer John Axford in the Cards' eventual 3-2 win.
Holliday was 23-for-59 (.390) during the streak and has raised his average from .215 to .317 since May 1.
He came into Tuesday's game with a line of .317/.393/.512, including 14 homers and 59 RBI. He's first on the team in hits (107), second on the team in RBI, BA and runs (56) and third in OBP.
