Molina (knee) went 3-for-4 with an RBI single, a double and three runs in Sunday's 8-4 win over the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

After having sat Friday and Saturday with knee soreness, Molina was a last-minute addition to Sunday's lineup and delivered in a notable way. His seventh-inning single snapped a 4-4 tie, and he went on to post his first three-hit game of the season. After knocking in only one run over the first 12 games of June, the veteran backstop has now compiled six RBI over his last six contests and is also riding an 11-game hitting streak.

Molina is now batting fifth and catching Sunday against the Pirates, David Solomon of 550 KTRS reports.

EDGE Analysis

Molina was initially absent when the Cardinals posted their lineup earlier in the day, with Eric Fryer catching and batting eighth. He was scratched Friday and Saturday with knee soreness and that was thought to be the reason for his presumed absence Sunday. However, Molina must be feeling well enough now to get the start.
