*According to the Elias Sports Bureau, last night’s 6-5 Reds win was the Majors’ third game of the season that began with a leadoff home run (Heisey) and ended with awalkoff homer (Phillips). The other teams to do it were the Nationals (6/16, also vs. STL) and the Angels (7/8 vs. SEA).

*Also from Elias, after allowing leadoff homers in each of his last start to Heisey, Cardinals pitcher Jake Westbrook became the first to allow leadoff homers to begin consecutive starts to thge same batter since Tampa Bay’s Steve Trachsel to Seattle’s Rickey Henderson in 2000.

*Zack Cozart’s five-game hitting streak to begin his big league career is the longest begin-a-career hit streak since  Adam Dunn had a seven-game streak in 2001.
