stats_logo_400x225

* The Cubs have won back-to-back games against the Marlins by multiple runs, after losing each of their previous six meetings (with each loss coming by multiple runs).

* The Marlins are coming off an 8-5 victory against the Twins in which they punched out 16 hits – 12 singles and four doubles. On the season, Miami is 3-0 when scoring at least seven runs, but 2-16 when scoring fewer than seven runs.

* So far this season, Cubs pitchers are allowing their opponents to hit an MLB-low .201 in their home stadiums.

* While Alfonso Soriano is hitting .333 (16/48) this season with nobody on base, he is hitting just .125 (2/16) with runners in scoring position.

* Steve Cishek is one of just five pitchers with at least six wins and 15 saves since the beginning of last season.

* Kevin Slowey has not picked up a single victory (0-10) over his last 13 starts – the third-longest active streak in the majors. Scott Feldman, meanwhile, has not won a single game (0-8) over his last 11 starts.

  • NY CUBS fan 84

    Thursday April 25th Chicago cubs vs. Miami marlins was supposed to be on MLB which I pay for $199 thru Directv . Not on they tell me the local wgntv has hockey on instead. Not on WGN america which I get ch307. not list on national broadcast mlb channel 312.On this webpage wgn-tv 9 listing under twitter shows marlins/cubs on 5 different channels locally in chicago area. Why has someone dropped the ball and not have this game on? I can't imagine how much advertising is being lost due to this snafu ? or what ever you call it. WGN use to carry all cubs games on ,now they have one to two games a week which really sucks. That"s how I became a Cubs fan Tbs had the braves WGN had the cubs and occasionally the White sucks and nesn had the red sox, three of the biggest fan bases in mlb. I know money talks . The Yankees go after the money but you would never see them not have their teams broadcast on. Thats why they have 26 titles and not a 100 year drought! Your also losing future cub fans! You can't depend on it ! You want to come home after a long day @ work sit back watch your team play good or bad. Nope not today. Thanks for the time and space.

    DON'T BE SO SMUG ABOUT SAYING A HEAD FIRST SLIDE INTO FIRST MAKES NO SENSE. IF THE RUNNER CAN HIT THE BAG IN FULL STRIDE, THEN YOU ARE CORRECT. HOWEVER, SOMETIMES YOU WOULD NEED TO BREAK STRIDE TO TOUCH THE BASE – IN THIS CASE IT CERTAINLY IS FASTER TO SLIDE . SLIDE RATHER THN BREAK STRIDE MAKES A LOT OF SENSE.
