The Cardinals Matt Holiday out with back problems

St. Louis outfielder Matt Holliday was scratched from the Cardinals' lineup on Monday night with back spasms.

Holliday was in the original lineup for the game against Washington, but was removed 20 minutes before the first pitch.

Holliday missed Sunday's game at Milwaukee with the same ailment.

Shane Robinson started in left field on Monday.

Holliday was 13 for 26 on the recently completed seven-game trip. He is hitting .298 with 20 homers and 91 RBIs.
