• Several hours before Friday's game Yadier Molina, along with teammates Daniel Descalso, Jon Jay, Tony Cruz and Carlos Martinez, taped segments at Busch Stadium for a music video for artist Tony Lenta, who is signed by Molina Records.
• Mozeliak said that the Marco Gonzales' strong showing since being promoted to Double-A "gives [the organization] hope that he could end up at Triple-A before the season ends."

• Oscar Taveras, on his 22nd birthday, collected two hits, two runs and two RBIs in Memphis' 12-9 on Thursday. He was one of six Redbird players to have a multi-hit game for the Triple-A club. Pete Kozma drove in four runs; Xavier Scruggs went 3-for-5 with two doubles and three runs scored.
