Originally slated to start in left field and bat third in Game 6, Matt Holliday was scratched from Sunday's starting lineup about an hour and a half before first pitch. Back stiffness is the cause. Holliday has been struggling in the postseason, particularly of late. He's 4-for-21 with no extra-base hits and no walks against the Giants. His lone October homer came in the wild card game against the Braves two weeks ago.
