Worth noting

The Cardinals had four bunt singles in Saturday's win against Atlanta (two each by Kolten Wong and Peter Bourjos). According to the Elias Sports Bureau, it is the first time that has been done since the Detroit Tigers did it in Kansas City on Sept. 23, 2003.

Randy Choate threw one pitch Saturday and it was a big one. He induced an inning-ending double play off the bat of Freddie Freeman in the eighth. Choate has not allowed an inherited runner to score this season, stranding all eight.

Marco Gonzales, the Cardinals' No. 1 Draft choice in 2013, had his Double-A debut Saturday night in Springfield. The Gonzaga product pitched five innings in Springfield's 7-4 victory over Arkansas. He allowed six hits and three runs, two earned. He walked two and struck out five. Gonzales threw 90 pitches, 56 of them strikes.

Shane Robinson and Xavier Scruggs had big games Saturday as Memphis defeated Omaha, 6-2. Robinson was 3-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored while Scruggs had a double and a triple and drove in four runs.
