• With an early afternoon workout the only scheduled activity on Saturday's off-day, several members of the Cardinals' organization opted to spend the evening at Consol Energy Center watching an NHL game between the Penguins and Bruins. Among those who attended the hockey game were pitchers Chris Carpenter, Jake Westbrook and Lance Lynn.
• The Cards entered Sunday's game having not homered in their last 12 games at PNC Park; that includes all 10 games this season. The last St. Louis player to go deep at PNC Park was Holliday, on Aug. 27, 2012.
• After enjoying ideal weather conditions for the first three games of the NLDS, the Pirates and Cardinals may be at Mother Nature's mercy on Monday. Twenty-four hours out from the scheduled first pitch in Game 4 (2 p.m. CT on TBS), weather.com forecasted a 70 percent chance of rain.
