Worth noting

• Matheny said he was fined for his actions following Yadier Molina's ejection Sunday. The manager ran out onto the field to protest the ejection and was also tossed from the game.

In his postgame press conference, he spoke out strongly against first-base umpire Clint Fagan's decision to eject Molina.

"It kind of goes along with the territory," Matheny said of the fine.

• Reliever Mitchell Boggs started for Triple-A Memphis on Monday. He pitched two scoreless innings, surrendering three hits and striking out two.

Boggs was demoted to Triple-A on Friday after taking the loss in the Cardinals' collapse in the ninth inning on Thursday.

• David Freese, Jon Jay and other Cardinals players welcomed 50 children from Mission: St. Louis for a meet and greet before Tuesday's game as part of Major League Baseball Players Trust's "Buses for Baseball" program.

The program provides transportation, game tickets and an opportunity to interact with players to underprivileged children.
