Programming note: Cardinals Game 3 starter John Lackey and manager Mike Matheny are scheduled to address the media at 2:45 p.m. Watch the live stream right here.
Yadier Molina left Sunday night's Game 2 in the sixth inning and did not return.
Whether or not he starts Game 3 on Tuesday is yet to be determined, but the six-time Gold Glove catcher did make the trip to San Francisco, according to a report.
Molina strained his left oblique when he hit a sharp double-play grounder to second in the sixth.
He immediately bent over and didnt leave the batter's box.
The six-time All-Star missed 40 games during the regular season with a thumb injury and St. Louis went just 21-19 in his absence.
If the Cardinals elect to remove Molina from the roster, he would be ineligible for the World Series if St. Louis advances past the Giants.
Tony Cruz is the Cardinals' backup catcher. Over 50 games this season, he hit .200 with one home run and 17 RBI.
Former Giants catcher A.J. Pierzynski is also on St. Louis' NLCS roster.
