Jays’ Coghlan flips over Molina for acrobatic run

11:57 PM ET

ST. LOUIS — Chris Coghlan soared headfirst over Yadier Molina to score a run for the slumping Toronto Blue Jays at Busch Stadium on Tuesday night.

The Blue Jays third baseman was on first when Kevin Pillar hit a soaring drive off the right-field wall for what proved to be a triple. Stephen Piscotty collected it and made a strong throw that beat Coghlan easily, but with Molina hunched over securing the ball, Coghlan jumped over him headfirst. He flipped when the Cardinals catcher started to stand up, his right arm and right shoulder hitting the plate before he came down and well before Molina had a chance to tag him.

At 5-14, the Blue Jays had the worst record in baseball entering the game and had scored the second-fewest runs in the majors.
