ST. LOUIS (AP) - This was a different sort of injury bug for Matt Holliday.
A moth got stuck deep in Holliday's right ear Monday night, forcing the St. Louis Cardinals slugger out of a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
With two outs in the top of the eighth inning, Holliday walked off the field holding his ear. Cardinals trainer Barry Weinberg tried to assist the All-Star left fielder as he headed toward the dugout.
"He had a moth fly into his ear, deep into his ear. I don't even know what happened to it," St. Louis manager Tony La Russa said moments after his team's 2-1 loss.
Team spokesman Brian Bartow said Holliday was taken into a dark room and trainers put a light by his ear to try to lure the insect out. That didn't work so they used a utensil to get the moth, which was still alive, out of Holliday's ear.
The outfielder was not available for comment after the game but appeared to be OK, Bartow said.
