Worth noting

• Three-hit games by outfielder Mike O'Neill and second baseman Kolten Wong helped lead Triple-A Memphis to a 5-3 win over Las Vegas on Tuesday. Wong drove home two, while O'Neill finished with one RBI and one run scored. Nick Additon improved to 8-6 with the win. He gave Memphis six shutout innings, allowing two runs, one walk and striking out five.

• It took 10 pitches and sensational split-second reaction for Dodgers lefty Clayton Kershaw to retire Craig in a fourth-inning at-bat on Tuesday. Craig finished the game 1-for-3 against Kershaw, who afterward heaped praise on the Cardinals first baseman.

"He's one of the best hitters in the National League, in my opinion," Kershaw said. "It doesn't seem like he's fooled on any pitch. He's on everything. Every at-bat is tough."

• Wednesday was Star Wars Night at Busch Stadium, and it brought former Cardinal infielder David Eckstein back to St. Louis, too. His wife, Ashley, is the voice of Ahsoka Tano on the Star Wars: The Clone Wars series. She threw out a ceremonial first pitch to her husband before the game.
