Worth noting

• With his infield single in the first inning Thursday, Matt Holliday collected the 1,500th hit of his career.

• Right-hander Chris Carpenter is scheduled to throw his second bullpen session on Friday. Carpenter, who is recovering from neurogenic thoracic outlet surgery, threw long toss on Thursday. He threw off the mound on Tuesday for the first time since undergoing the procedure.

• Right-hander Chris Corrigan threw the first perfect game in Palm Beach (Class A Advanced) history on Wednesday night. Corrigan struck out nine of the 27 batters he retired. Corrigan, a 30th-round pick in the 2008 First-Year Player Draft, is 4-8 with a 4.02 ERA in 20 games (16 appearances) with Palm Beach this season.

• Outfielder Anthony Garcia and designated hitter Colin Walsh of low-Class A Quad Cities were both named to the Midwest League postseason All-Star team. Garcia, who is currently on the disabled list, has 19 home runs, 56 extra-bases and 208 total bases in 109 games. Walsh leads the Midwest League in slugging percentage (.538) and on-base percentage (.419). He is batting .314 with 16 homers.

• Matt Carpenter twisted his ankle taking fielding practice prior to Thursday's game and was still hobbling around the clubhouse after the game. Carpenter hurt his ankle while doing work at second base, a position he has played only sparingly this season.
