--LF Matt Holliday and the Cardinals hope Thursday's off-day in Denver will allow him enough time for his strained left quadriceps to heal so that he can play this weekend against Colorado. Holliday made three starts as a designated hitter last weekend in Kansas City but hasn't played in the field since May 18.

--INF Nick Punto, who has a strained right forearm flexor tendon, is able to come off the disabled list next weekend. But that is unlikely as Punto has not even begun throwing yet.

--The Cardinals are 28-12 when RHP Chris Carpenter, their acknowledged ace, does not start a game. They are 2-9 in the games he does start. "I've been on the other side of this," Carpenter said. "Now I guess it's my turn."

--OF Jon Jay has hit .368 as a starter in 18 games. And he's played well defensively at all three outfield positions, starting at least one game in each in the last week.

--The Cardinals will wrap up their road schedule against National League Western Division teams before Memorial Day. Their three-game series at Colorado this weekend will mark the final time the Cardinals will play a game this season outside the Central and Eastern time zones.

BY THE NUMBERS
2.5 -- Average number of runs the Cardinals have scored when LF Matt Holliday hasn't played (10 games) because of his appendectomy or left leg injury.

QUOTE TO NOTE
"We're not going to push it. There's a lot of season left." -- Manager Tony La Russa, on injured LF Matt Holliday, who has a strained left quadriceps.
