NOTES: Cardinals 3B Troy Glaus reported no improvement in a pulled left side muscle sustained on a checked swing Saturday and remains sidelined indefinitely, which will make it difficult for the Cardinals to get him up to speed in time for the postseason. ... Rick VandenHurk will replace Chris Volstad in the Marlins' rotation on Friday. Volstad allowed four earned runs and walked five in three innings in his last start. ... John Smoltz will throw a bullpen session Wednesday and is due to start for St. Louis either Friday or Saturday against the Cubs. ... Florida's Emilio Bonafacio stole his 21st base in the seventh as a pinch-runner, but it was his first since Aug. 13. ... Skip Schumaker of the Cardinals had two hits and is 8 for 12 the last three games.
