Cubs Game Notes For Friday vs. Cincinnati

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

*The Chicago Cubs in 2015 are all about the long at-bat. They walk a lot (202 times – 3rd most in MLB), strike out a lot (561 times – ties for MLB high with Houston), and typically see quite a few pitches (4.0 pitches/plate appearance – tops in MLB).

*Since August 10, 2012, the Reds have won 18 of 20 games at Wrigley Field.

*Joey Votto once hit three home runs in a game against the North Siders. But it’s now been just over two years (6/11//13) since he went deep against Cubs pitching, and he’s done so only twice in the last five seasons.

*Get Johnny Cueto early. This season, Cueto has a 4.91 ERA in the first inning, and a 2.27 mark in the second inning and after.
