Worth noting

• Williams said outfielder Nate McLouth is recovering from the lacerated hand he suffered while making a highlight-reel catch sliding into a wall on Monday. Even though he was out of Friday's starting lineup, Williams said McLouth would "for sure" be back for Saturday's matinee.

"He hit today," Williams said Friday. "It's still a little sore -- its an open wound. Still a little sore, but he can go today if we needed him to go."
