Injured Cardinals C Yadier Molina had a playful gift delivered for older brother Jose in the first inning Wednesday. When Cardinals 3B coach Jose Oquendo headed out of the dugout, he dropped two packages of cheese crackers on home plate for Jose, who put them in his back pocket. Noted Rays TV analyst Brian Anderson: "You will see him technically sound in this inning so as not to smash said crackers."

A Zimmer commemorative
The Rays are going ahead Friday with a promotional item in the name of Don Zimmer, who died June 6. The Don Zimmer Snow Globe will be available as part of Tampa Bay Times ticket tandem. The team said the Zimmer family wanted the promotion to go on as scheduled, though the team decided to have proceeds go to charity through the Rays Baseball Foundation.
