Worth noting

• After two days on the bench, Oscar Taveras returned to the starting lineup as the team's right fielder on Saturday. Taveras did deliver a pinch-hit RBI single in Friday's win after having just two hits in the 20 preceding at-bats.

• The Cardinals' bullpen accepted the Ice Bucket Challenge on Saturday afternoon and passed it along to the starting rotation, which also completed it in the Cardinals' dugout. The social media phenomenon was popularized as a way to raise money and awareness for ALS.

• Former Cardinals catcher Rob Johnson, who was in the Padres' system this year before an arm injury ended his season, traveled to St. Louis this weekend to visit some of his old teammates. Johnson also introduced several Cardinals players to a family friend who suffers from Prader-Willi Syndrome.

• Though the Cardinals rank second to last in the Majors in runs scored, the team has the third-highest total of two-out RBIs in baseball with 191. Only Oakland (207) and Miami (192) had amassed more, entering Saturday.
