|Tue Jun 24||14:42||Matt Holliday could remain in No. 2 spot|
Cardinals manager Mike Matheny indicated on MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM on Tuesday that Matt Holliday could remain in the No. 2 spot in the order.
Holliday has batted second in each of the last two games. He's still getting on base at a high clip, but not hitting for as much power as in the past, so it's worthwhile experiment for St. Louis.

|Sun Jun 22||12:01||Matt Holliday moves up to No. 2 spot|
Matt Holliday is batting second for the Cardinals Sunday.
It's the first time since 2010 that he's hit in the No. 2 hole. Holliday has been getting on base (.376 on-base percentage) but not hitting for power (.388 slugging percentage), so it's a move that makes sense. Matt Adams has moved up to the No. 3 spot, while Allen Craig is hitting cleanup.

Matt Holliday went 3-for-3 with a home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Yankees.
Holliday also walked in the game, reaching base in all four plate appearances. The homer was the outfielder's third of the season. He typically heats up with the weather, so his .395 slugging percentage should continue to rise with the temperatures.
|Fri May 23||22:01||Matt Holliday goes hitless in loss to Reds|

He came around to score on his first-inning single, and he drove in a run with his single in the fifth. He's heating up, having hit in five straight games. He's still looking for his third homer of the year, though, as his power stroke has gone cold.
|Wed May 7||22:09||Holliday's 3 hits, 3 RBI help Cards top ATL|
Matt Holliday went 3-for-5 with three runs batted in as the Cardinals defeated the Braves on Wednesday.
Holliday knocked in a pair with a fourth-inning single, and brought in one more with a single in the ninth inning. That all three hits were singles is noteworthy, as Holliday has been noticeably devoid of power thus far, carrying a .392 SLG through 149 plate appearances. He has hit at least 22 home runs in each season dating back to 2006, but currently has two, putting him on pace for nine over a full season.

Matt Holliday went 3-for-3 with an RBI double and a walk in Friday's 1-0 win over the Pirates.
