• Third baseman Aramis Ramirez took Sunday off after playing five straight games following a stint on the disabled list. He had played all nine innings in four straight games entering Sunday, the first as a designated hitter and the other three at third base. Ramirez is 1-for-16 since returning.
"Hopefully we can get him back out there [Monday]," said Roenicke, who was unsure whether Ramirez would play all three games against the Cardinals.
