Wednesday April 14 Game Preview: Yadi one game from 2,000
Wednesday’s day game against the Washington Nationals with Adam Wainwright on the mound will be a special one for both the pitcher and the catcher if it goes the way they hope.
Yadier Molina (1,999) is one game caught away from reaching 2,000 for his career, becoming the 6th catcher in MLB history to catch 2,000 career games, and the only backstop to do so exclusively with one team … Hall of Famer Gabby Hartnett ranks 2nd to Molina in career games caught for any franchise (1,754 for Chicago Cubs), while Hall of Famer Johnny Bench ranks 2nd to Molina in most career games caught for only one team (1,743 for Cincinnati Reds).
