• Third baseman Chase Headley, who entered Sunday's game tied for first in the National League in games played (34), got his first start off of the season Sunday. It was a planned day off, one that manager Bud Black informed him of on Friday. James Darnell got the start at third base.

"I'm really indifferent to it," Headley said. "Sometimes you need it more than others. We just had an off-day [Thursday] so it wasn't like we had played 20 in a row."
