• Asked if Pennsylvania native Matt Adams might be in line to make the start in Wednesday's series finale, manager Mike Matheny said that was "yet to be determined." Adams walked in a pinch-hit plate appearance Monday after hitting a homer in three straight games.
• Shelby Miller will make his fourth career start Wednesday, but he has already made some history through his first three. Miller is the only player since at least 1916 to have two games of at least six shutout innings and no more than one hit allowed in his first 10 career appearances. Miller allowed one hit in his only start last season (six innings) and also in his most recent one (seven innings), which came Friday.
• Top Cardinals prospect Oscar Taveras had his five-game hitting streak ended Monday with an 0-for-4 game against Triple-A Oklahoma City. In his first seven games with Memphis, Taveras is 8-for-26.
