Worth noting

• The Cardinals are sending Jason Motte to Triple-A Memphis to continue his rehab stint after he successfully pitched in back-to-back games for Double-A Springfield on Friday and Saturday. Motte, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, made four appearances in total with Springfield.

Joe Kelly (left hamstring strain) has not resumed throwing off a mound since returning to St. Louis on May 4, manager Mike Matheny said.

Randal Grichuk, recently optioned back to Memphis, went 3-for-5 on Sunday with two doubles, a home run, two RBIs and two runs scored in the team's 5-1 win. Kolten Wong, Oscar Taveras and Pete Kozma had the only other Memphis hits in the game.

• With his second-inning single, Jhonny Peralta assured himself of hitting safely in all nine games on this road trip. That hit bumped his average up to .246 from .196 at the beginning of the three-city road swing.
