Worth noting

• Lance Berkman has rejoined the club for this series in Houston, which is also his permanent home. Berkman, who underwent his second right knee surgery of the season earlier in September, is continuing through his rehab program. He has not been cleared to resume any baseball activities.

While Berkman said he won't rule out a return, it remains highly unlikely that Berkman plays again this year.

• Two days after Jake Westbrook (right oblique strain) said he fears his season is over, general manager John Mozeliak, too, said that it looks unlikely that Westbrook will be back. The Cardinals plan to give Westbrook a few more days off before seeing how his side responds. It's too early to know whether Westbrook would be able to work his way back in time to pitch in the postseason, if St. Louis gets there.

• The Cardinals are offering a select number of $3.20 tickets for the club's final regular-season series of 2012. The ticket price was selected as a way to thank fans for pushing the team's year-long attendance over 3.2 million. The tickets, which are available for the Oct. 1-3 games against Cincinnati, go on sale Tuesday at 10 a.m. CT. They are available for purchase at www.cardinals.com/thanks.
