UPDATE: Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times passes along word that Freese exited with right calf tightness. He’s considered day-to-day.

9:44 p.m. ET: Troubling development for the Cardinals, as third baseman David Freese was forced to exit Game 3 of the NLCS tonight with an apparent injury.

Freese was visited by Cardinals manager Mike Matheny and a team trainer after he singled against Dodgers left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu to lead off the top of the fifth inning. He remained in the game initially and advanced to second base on a single by Matt Adams, but was then replaced by pinch-runner Daniel Descalso. Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch speculates that it could be a hamstring/leg issue.

Freese is 5-for-26 (.192) with one home run, one double, and four RBI so far during the postseason.

    how come at first it is always you have to have your foot on the bag, but on second it is completely different.

    this attempted double play on Molina was a damn joke.

    It didn’t help that his pinch-runner goes all TOOTBLAN one batter later.
