• After playing in both ends of Saturday's split doubleheader and starting 38 of 39 games since the All-Star break, Matt Adams was out of the Cardinals' starting lineup on Sunday. Adams, in his first full season as the Cardinals' starting first baseman, is 1-for-12 this homestand and is hitting .240/.316/.337 with one home run in August.
• Mark Ellis (left oblique strain) has not progressed enough in his recovery to join a Minor League club for a rehab assignment. Ellis has still not resumed swinging at full intensity.
• Matheny said that he does not anticipate any additional callups being made until Tuesday, even though roster expansion can begin on Monday. He skirted around answering whether the club would take additional players off the Triple-A roster before Memphis finishes its run in the postseason.
"Anything you say now, what benefit is it for the guys who are down there?" Matheny said. "We just want them to concentrate on having a great finish, and then what happens after that, happens after that."
• Yadier Molina continues to respond well to being back behind the plate, so well, in fact, that he caught Sunday's day game after starting the team's night game in Saturday's doubleheader. Molina has played in three games since returning from the disabled list on Friday.
• With an announced crowd of 45,148 at Busch Stadium on Sunday, the Cardinals became the second Major League team to hit the three-million attendance mark this season. The Cardinals, who have drawn at least 40,000 to all 69 home games, have surpassed three million in attendance every season since Busch Stadium III opened.
