    Cubs Game Notes For Friday vs. Pittsburgh

    * Pittsburgh’s 2-1 road win over the Cubs on May 15 snapped its overall six-game losing skid in this series. * The Pirates are 9-13 in day games so far this season, including 4-8 in daytime contests on the road. * Ben Zobrist leads the majors with his .425 on base percentage. That is on pace for a new career high for Zobrist, whose previous best (.405) came back in 2009. The last Cubs’ player to lead the majors in […]

    Cubs Game Notes For Wednesday @ Washington

    * It’s only the middle of June, and yet all three National League division leaders (Cubs, Giants, Nats)  already have at least a five-game cushion. This is the earliest that has ever occurred in the NL since the six-division era began in 1994. * Danny Espinosa is coming off of a recent stretch where he homered eight times in a 15-game span, something only three other shortstops in the last decade have done. * Stephen Strasburg is trying to become […]

    White Sox Game Notes For Saturday vs. Kansas City

    * Kansas City was 44-37 on the road last season but is just 11-23 away from home this season. * Sox third baseman Todd Frazier is averaging a home run every 11.84 at-bats. * Jose Quintana has improved his strikeout-to-walk ratio each season since his rookie campaign in 2012. Prior to Quintana, the last left-handed pitcher to improve his strikeout-to-walk ratio every season through his first five seasons (beginning with his rookie season; minimum 20 starts each season), was David Price […]

    Cubs Game Notes For Sunday vs. Atlanta

    * The Chicago Cubs entered this weekend’s series 24.5 games ahead of the Atlanta Braves before splitting the first two games.

When Bryant has multiple hits, the Cubs are 43-9. *Jon Lester has a 2.98 ERA in 44 starts with the Cubs. […]

    White Sox Game Notes For Friday vs. Kansas City

    * The Royals are 5-1 against the White Sox so far in 2016, including winning two of three in Chicago. Those three contests were very low scoring; Kansas City had eight runs to Chicago’s five. * Kansas City has been held to one or zero runs in each of their last six games. The last team to score one or zero runs in 7+ consecutive contests was the Oakland A’s, who had a seven-game streak, September 12-17, 1978. The all-time […]

    Cubs Game Notes For Friday @ Atlanta

    * The Cubs and Braves split two games in Chicago April 29-May 1. After dropping its previous eight road games in this series, Chicago has now won its last two. * The Cubs (41-17) and Braves (17-42) have near mirror images in terms of their records in 2016. Chicago’s 41 wins are its most through 58 games since 1918 (41), while Atlanta’s 17 wins are its fewest through 59 games since 1911 (14). The Braves snapped a six-game skid with […]

    White Sox Game Notes For Thursday vs. Washington

    *Including this series, Washington has an 8-2-1 (.773) road series record this season, the third-highest road series win percentage in MLB. * Chicago has drawn walks at a much higher rate this season (15.02 plate appearances per base on balls)  than it did last season (11.74). * Daniel Murphy has totaled 28 extra-base hits to just 26 strikeouts this season. * It’s probably safe to say that Chicago’s trade for Todd Frazier over the offseason has worked out so far, […]

    * The Nationals have won four straight games against the White Sox, tied for their third-longest win streak against any team in interleague play.
