Worth noting

Matt Holliday collected two of the Cardinals' three hits in Monday's 6-0 loss to Kansas City. Holliday had hit .467 (7-for-15) in Interleague Play this season entering Tuesday.

Yadier Molina has scuffled at the plate during the homestand, hitting .095 (2-for-21) with both hits coming May 28. Manager Mike Matheny isn't worried about his All-Star catcher, who is hitting .305 overall.

"The guy has hit the ball hard. He's frustrated, because he's a perfectionist and he's a pro," Matheny said. "He'll come around, because his approach is right and he stings the ball like he did yesterday the opposite way. His swing looks right, he's just not getting a lot of luck."

• It was 10 years ago Tuesday that Molina made his debut in the Majors when Matheny hit the disabled list. Molina went 2-for-4 in his debut against Pittsburgh.
