Worth noting

• Beltran returned to the starting lineup on Wednesday after missing Tuesday's series opener due to left hand soreness. Beltran had a cortisone injection in his hand to help relieve the pain, which had worsened in recent days. Beltran has gone just 4-for-23 on this homestand, results that are perhaps directly related to his hand issue.

• Wainwright's 12-strikeout performance on Tuesday came on the heels of Jaime Garcia's Sunday start in which he struck out 10. The pair became the first Cardinals starters to pitch consecutive double-digit strikeout games since Alan Benes (10) and Todd Stottlemyre (10) did so in 1997.

• The Cardinals will be featured on NBC Sports Network's new series, "Caught Looking", in an episode set to air on Thursday, Aug. 30. Camera crews from MLB Production will be embedded with the Cardinals and Reds during their series in Cincinnati over the weekend to collect footage for the program.
