• Allen Craig (left foot sprain) is scheduled to have his injured foot re-examined on Thursday, after which the Cardinals will determine the next step in Craig's rehab process. That exam is expected to include X-rays.
• The Cubs are scheduled to start the following pitchers in their weekend series at Busch Stadium: Travis Wood (9-11, 2.98 ERA) on Friday, Edwin Jackson (8-17, 4.74 ERA) on Saturday and Jeff Samardzija (8-12, 4.33 ERA) on Sunday.
• According to the Elias Sports Bureau, this is the first season since 1990 that three pitchers have had a no-hitter broken up after 8 2/3 innings. Before Michael Wacha lost his no-hit bit on an infield single Tuesday, Yu Darvish (April 2) and Yusmeiro Petit (Sept. 6) had it happen to them.
