• Yadier Molina hit in the No. 2 spot in the lineup for the second straight day on Monday as manager Mike Matheny continues his efforts to jumpstart an inconsistent offense. Matheny indicated that Molina could be his No. 2 hitter for a while, but that it won't be a long-term lineup spot for the veteran catcher.
• After opening the year in extended spring training, left-hander Rob Kaminsky made his Class A debut with Peoria (Ill.) on Sunday. Kaminsky, the No. 28 overall pick in the 2013 First-Year Player Draft, took the loss while allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits in four innings. He walked two and struck out two.
• Adam Wainwright received votes for the National League Pitcher of the Month Award, which ultimately went to Miami's Jose Fernandez. Wainwright went 5-1 with a 1.20 ERA, 42 strikeouts and 11 walks in March/April. Fernandez finished 4-1 with a 1.59 ERA, 55 strikeouts and eight walks during that same period.
• Sunday's win by Kevin Siegrist was the first by a Cardinals reliever in 32 games this season. The team's first reliever to earn a win in 2013 also came on May 4, though that marked the 30th game of that season.
