- There were positives for Alex Reyes to take away from his first career start Saturday night, but that wasn't the case for the Cardinals, who saw a 2-0 lead turn into a 3-2 loss to Oakland at Busch Stadium. Reyes worked 4 2/3 innings, allowing just two hits, but issued four walks.
- Reyes left the game with the lead but saw his 14-inning scoreless streak end as he was standing in the dugout when Zach Duke hit a batter and issued a bases-loaded walk. The A's scored two more runs in the eighth on a poor defensive decision on a fielder's choice grounder and a sacrifice fly. It was the fourth time in the last 10 days the Cardinals had a chance to move a season-high 10 games over .500 and lost.
- Jaime Garcia wil get the start today in the final game of the series and the homestand. Andrew Triggs will start for the A's in the 1:15 p.m. game.
- Chris Carpenter, Joe Torre and the late Terry Moore and Sam Breadon were inducted into the Cardinals Hall of Fame on Saturday in a ceremony at Ballpark Village. Carpenter and Torre were elected in a fan note, Moore was selected by a veteran's committee and Breadon was the pick of the team's owners.
