St. Louis Cardinals Notes, Quotes 2009-04-30
--Of the Cardinals' 20 hits in the Atlanta series, 19 of them were singles. But three of their seven singles drove in runs with two outs Wednesday, and for the series, the Cardinals had seven run-scoring singles with two outs. SS Brendan Ryan's double in the third inning was the only extra-base hit for the club in three games in Atlanta.

--The series victory was the Cardinals' third in succession. In seven series this year, they have won five, split one and lost one.

--The Cardinals, who were hitting .330 with runners in scoring position, maintained that average Tuesday. The trouble was that they had just three at-bats with men in scoring position, all in the first inning. C Yadier Molina was the only one to come through in that inning.

BY THE NUMBERS: 8 -- Grand slams for 1B Albert Pujols, who has just started his ninth season.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I think you understand you're in the presence of a once-in-a-lifetime hitter." -- SS Khalil Greene on 1B Albert Pujols.
