You Have to See This Play That Left Yadier Molina Baffled

You Have to See This Play That Left Yadier Molina Baffled

What we do know is the freaky mishap didn't help St. Louis. "I know Yadi doesn't put anything on his chest protectors".

Molina didn't like the "dumb question" but said he doesn't put anything on his chest protector.

Whatever happened, it sure made for a unusual situation at Busch Stadium.

The 24-year-old outfielder is officially back after hitting a three-run bomb against the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday afternoon.

As Matt Szczur led off the seventh inning, the vaunted Cubs lineup had scored only seven runs in twenty four innings in 2017, far off of the 2016 pace when they plated twenty nine runs in their first three games. That pretty much leaves one explanation: Either the ball or his chest protector was really, really sticky. "Have never seen it". It was definitely Velcro-d to his chest. The ball was stuck to Molina's chest protector on a dropped third strike allowing the Cubs' Matt Szczur to reach first base when Molina couldn't find the ball. "I have nothing to tell you".

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny, a former catcher himself, couldn't explain it a day later. "I don't know what happened".

Catchers sometimes dab pine tar on their shin guards to help give them a better grip on throws.

Ben Zobrist's error on a potential inning-ending double-play ball off Molina's bat gifted St. Louis the first of three runs. It's hard to steal bases and go from first to third when you can't get on base in the first place.

Aledmys Diaz, SS: He produced a pair of two-hit games during the Cubs. It was only moments later when Cubs phenom Kyle Schwarber delivered his first home run of the season to give the Cubs a 5-4 lead. "I turned it up so I could make it through".

It's not often Yadier Molina gets flustered behind home plate.

Weaver, who grew up in the Los Angeles area and played at Long Beach State, pitched in a different uniform for the first time in his career after spending 11 years with the Angels.

Geovany Soto, the catcher who joined the White Sox as a free agent this offseason, added his first two home runs for Chicago. Cardinals RF Stephen Piscotty (head contusion) appeared Thursday as part of a double-switch in the sixth inning and went 0-for-2.

Cecil yielded 4 runs without recording an out and took the loss in his second game with the team. Reynolds homered in the third off Milwaukee starter Chase Anderson, and Arenado hit a tiebreaking home run in the ninth off Neftali Feliz.

"It looked like he was having trouble with his command, and in spring training he was commanding the ball extremely well", Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said.
