- Matt Holliday re-injured his right leg in the first inning Wednesday night, which could change the Cardinals' strategy before the non-waiver trading deadline on Friday. The team said the injury was a strain of his right quad, the same injury which kept Holliday out for 31 games in June and July. He was playing in just his11th game since returning to the lineup. Holliday was undergoing an MRI on Wednesday night and the team expects to know more the severity of the injury today.
- The Cardinals already had been in the market for a left-handed hitting first baseman, and now could add an outfielder to their trade targets as well if Holliday is expected to miss a significant amount of time, or perhaps the rest of the season.
- The Cardinals suffered their second consecutive shut out to the Reds as a home run by Jay Bruce off John Lackey in the second inning produced the only run of the game in the Reds' 1-0 victory. Lackey allowed only two hits over eight innings. The Cardinals have been held scoreless in their last 22 innings and have scored in only one of their last 30 innings.
- The Colorado Rockies and Cardinals will begin a four-game series tonight at Busch Stadium with Carlos Martinez pitching against Chris Rusin.
