Worth noting

• Catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, in an 0-for-22 rut with 12 strikeouts, was given a night off in the series finale in Los Angeles. Jeff Mathis made the start.

• The Marlins have yet to give Giancarlo Stanton a day off this season. That could come on Sunday in San Francisco, the last day of the 11-game road trip and stretch of 20 games in 20 days.
