Worth noting

• Outfielder Matt Holliday returned to the lineup Saturday after not starting Wednesday and Friday due to tightness in his lower back. Holliday, who tweaked the back Tuesday against New York, pinch-hit Friday in the ninth inning of a 5-4, 13-inning loss to Milwaukee. Holliday missed his first game since June 10.

• The Springfield Redbirds beat Tulsa 4-2 on Friday to take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-five Texas League semifinal series. Oscar Taveras and Audry Perez had two hits each. Kevin Siegrist allowed two runs and four hits in five innings to pick up the win. The Cardinals' Double-A affiliate is trying to reach the championship series for the second time in eight seasons in the league.

• The Cardinals begin a key seven-game road trip on Monday in San Diego. They play four games in Los Angeles beginning Thursday.
