Skip Schumaker didn’t last long in last night’s win over the Phillies, but he made quite the impact.
Getting the surprising nod over Jon Jay in center field for the deciding Game 5, Schumaker drove in the only run of the game with an RBI double off Roy Halladay in the first inning. However, he was pulled in the third inning with right oblique tightness.
Schumaker will likely be reevaluated today, but during the post-game celebration he told Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that it “doesn’t look good.” If he is forced to miss the NLCS, Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch suspects that Tyler Greene will replace him on the roster.
Schumaker, who batted .283/.333/.351 with a .685 OPS during the regular season, went 6-for-10 during the NLDS.
