(Busch Stadium) With a pair of hits in today’s 4-1 victory over San Diego, St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina moved into 8th place on the team’s all-time hit list.
A single in the third inning tied him with Ken Boyer (1855) before a sixth inning double moved Molina into sole possession of the spot. He added a lead-off single in the eighth inning.
“It’s just a great honor to be on that list,” Molina said. “I feel good about it, hopefully I keep seeing the ball pretty good and helping the team win.”
This comes just one day after Molina had a pair of hits and passed Curt Flood (1853) on the franchise list.
Up next for Molina will be Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith, who had 1944 hits during his time with St. Louis.
