KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Catcher Gerald Laird broke the index finger on his right hand when he was hit by a pitch from Louis Coleman in the 10th inning of St. Louis' 9-8 victory over Kansas City on Sunday.
Laird was squaring up to bunt when Coleman came inside with a pitch. He said X-rays revealed a clean break and he did not know how long he might be out.
