Worth noting

• The Cardinals are scheduled to begin a four-game series in Milwaukee on Thursday and will face the following Brewers starters (in order): Wily Peralta (2-1, 5.02 ERA), Kyle Lohse (1-2, 2.53), Yovani Gallardo (3-1, 4.25) and Marco Estrada (2-1, 4.58).

• Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Reds marked the first time the Cardinals have won a game without having a plate appearance with a runner in scoring position since Sept. 15, 2000, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. In that 3-2 win over the Cubs in 2000, the Cardinals clubbed three solo homers.

• Catcher Yadier Molina led all Major League catchers in April with 30 hits, the most he's had in a month since collecting 34 last May. Before this season, Molina has never tallied more than 24 hits in April. Including Wednesday, Molina has started 26 of the team's 27 games.
