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.
