Molina Lost a Ball Because It Was Stuck to His Chest Protector

Cardinal's Catcher Yadier Molina Can't Find Baseball That Is Literally Stuck To His Stomach

"That's a dumb question", Molina responded, per Ben Frederickson of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Whatever happened, it sure made for a odd situation at Busch Stadium. Amid a raucous celebration inside the visiting clubhouse after a 6-4 win, Schwarber heard someone yell out: "You made it past Game 3!"

The Cubs went on to win 6-4 on Kyle Schwarber's three-run home run in the seventh, moments after Molina's mishap.

Szczur, pinch-hitting for pitcher John Lackey, swung and missed at strike three from Brett Cecil, but the ball hit the ground before reaching Molina, so the outfielder took off for first base.

It's possible that some loose threads on Molina's chest protector got tangled up with the stitches on the baseball. I can see CJ becoming Joe's principal setup man by the end of this season. "It was definitely Velcro-ed to his chest".

As Molina frantically looked for the ball, Szczur headed toward first base.

What was Cecil's explanation? "That's all I can tell you".

As Molina frantically looked for the ball, Szczur headed toward first base.

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny, a former catcher himself, couldn't explain it a day later. "I wouldn't know anything about sticky stuff".

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

Molina was the victim of one of these weird bloopers recently.

"That play changed everything", Molina said.

He became a World Series hero by returning early to start four road games as the Cubs' designated hitter against Cleveland.

The Cubs were able to scratch a run across in the fifth inning on a Jon Jay single scoring Jason Heyward. Dan Altavilla (1-0) pitched a scoreless eighth for the win and Edwin Diaz struck out two in a ideal ninth for his first save.

Toronto didn't homer in losing both games during a season-opening series at Baltimore.

Kirk Nieuwenhuis tied it in the seventh with a solo homer off reliever Adam Ottavino. After dropping their first nine games last season on the way to a major league-most 103 losses, the Twins are 3-0 for the first time since 2007.

NEW YORK - Matt Harvey tossed 6 2/3 strong innings in his first regular-season start since undergoing surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, and New York beat Atlanta.

While the incident may have been amusing, it opened the door to the Cubs taking the lead. The Royals were outscored 14-0 in the seventh inning in the series.

The Cubs tacked on an insurance run when Kris Bryant walked - the first time he'd been on base this year - and that was followed by a single by Anthony Rizzo sending Bryant to third.
