St. Louis Cardinals player Stephen Piscotty was hit by the ball three times in one inning the other night. Scott Sterling is a fictional sports personality played by Matt Meese.
Holding fast to a two-run lead in the seventh inning Thursday afternoon, Cardinals reliever Brett Cecil got pinch-hitter Matt Szczur swinging at a curveball in the dirt for strike 3.
Catcher Yadier Molina looked to his feet to find the ball and make the routine throw to first for the first out. The ball wasn’t there, wasn’t anywhere around the plate. Molina didn’t see it at all — until he found it clinging curiously, as if by Velcro, to his chest protector.
