St. Louis Cardinals Notes, Quotes 2008-08-30
--RHP Chris Carpenter, sidelined with a strained right shoulder, threw a second 60-pitch bullpen session and reported continued progress. But if he comes back this season, it probably will be as a reliever.

--RHP Russ Springer, Friday's loser, suffered his first loss of the season. He has given up only 12 earned runs all year but has allowed four home runs.

--Houston has won the first game in each of the teams' five series this season. The Cardinals won the final two games of the series on the first four occasions.

--Manager Tony La Russa started nine right-handed batters against a left-hander (Randy Wolf) for the second consecutive game. Six batters had one hit apiece.

--RF Ryan Ludwick's sacrifice fly in the sixth inning was his 98th RBI of the season.

BY THE NUMBERS: 293 -- Number of saves with which RH reliever Jason Isringhausen, out for the season with a torn tendon near his right elbow, will finish the season.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "It's hard to believe he could have been that sharp with that much time missed." -- Manager Tony La Russa, on the return of RHP Adam Wainwright to the rotation.
