Holliday exits after left elbow hit by pitch

ST. LOUIS -- Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday left Friday's game against Washington in the sixth inning after being hit on the left elbow by a pitch from Christian Garcia.

"He just got hit in a bad spot. Everything came out negative," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said.

Shane Robinson replaced Holliday as a pinch-runner, staying in the game to play the outfield.

Holliday, who has 27 homers and 100 RBIs, is in an 0-for-10 skid.

Holliday appeared to take the pitch on the point of his elbow, and after being attended to by Matheny and Cards trainers, left the game.
