• With Bobby Meacham away from the team for two days to attend his son's college graduation in Colorado, Astros special assistant to the general manager/player development Dan Radison coached first base on Saturday and will do it again Sunday.

• Center fielder Jordan Schafer, who has tied the club record by reaching base safely in 25 consecutive games to start the season, was out of the lineup Saturday against the Cardinals. Astros manager Brad Mills said Schafer badly wanted to play, but Mills wanted to get Justin Maxwell, who started in center field, some at-bats.
