Worth noting

• Manager Mike Redmond has been looking for a day to get Giancarlo Stanton some rest. Wednesday's day game after a night game was not that day. The National League leader in home runs and RBIs was in the lineup in his usual No. 3 spot.

Henderson Alvarez's shutout of the Mets on Tuesday night, his second of the season and third in his past eight starts dating back to his no-hitter against the Tigers last September, made him the youngest pitcher with three shutouts in eight starts since Mark Mulder in 2001.
