ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina is not available against the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night because of what St. Louis manager Mike Matheny called ''a family situation.''

Molina and his brother, assistant hitting coach Bengie Molina, were not at the stadium at the start of the game.

Yadier Molina is hitting .318 with 11 home runs and 65 RBIs in 120 games.

Matheny did not indicate when Molina will return.
