"We're just trying to find what works," Matheny said. "I have been anxious to get Yadi back to where he's been so effective, too. He likes being wherever he's going to be in the lineup, but when it comes down to it, I'm one of the guys who doesn't like to mess with one of the things that's working. Yadi has been effective in the five-spot, and you just don't take things like that for granted. It's a little different look that has worked for us in the past, so we'll give it a ride."

• The Cardinals and Angels will wear special stars and stripes caps for Thursday's Independence Day game. The Cardinals' cap features a gray front with the logo filled in with red, white and blue.

• Prior to the Cardinals' game on July 4, FOX Sports Midwest will air a feature to pay tribute to the victims of the Moore, Okla., tornado victims. The show will highlight the efforts of a St. Louis-area softball team that collected and donated softball and baseball equipment to the devastated area. The Cardinals held fundraisers last month to help raise money for relief agencies assisting with the rebuilding efforts in Moore.
