Worth noting

• Wandy Rodriguez's win Tuesday was his 10th of the season, between the Astros and the Pirates. He has come within three wins -- finishing each season from 2006-08 with nine -- of joining CC Sabathia and Mark Buehrle as the only Major League lefties to win 10-plus every season since 2005.

• Outfielder Travis Snider will need "a few days," in manager Clint Hurdle's words, to recover from the strained right hamstring aggravation that knocked him out of Tuesday's game.

• One inning after replacing Snider, Jose Tabata fouled a pitch off his left foot -- and the contusion resulting from that forced him to be scratched from Wednesday's original lineup. As a result of the resulting batting-order shakeup, Alex Presley started in the eight-hole for the first time this season, and Clint Barmes made his third start at No. 2.

• Starling Marte was set to lead off and play center in Triple-A Indianapolis' playoff opener Wednesday night, after going 0-for-5 for Class A State College on Tuesday in his first rehab game.
