*The Miami Marlins and Chicago Cubs entered Sunday’s action with one walk-off win apiece in 2016; both teams doubled that figure on Sunday.
*Since the All-Star break, the Marlins’ offense has been an all-or-nothing proposition, averaging 6.6 runs in their 10 wins and 2.0 runs in their seven losses.
*Cubs hitters have drawn an MLB-high 437 walks in 2016 – that’s 31 more than any other team (Toronto – 406) and 55 more than any other NL club (Milwaukee – 382).
*In his two most recent series at Wrigley Field, in 2013 and 2014, Giancarlo Stanton did not hit a home run, while striking out in 11 of his 24 at-bats.
*For the Cubs, Kyle Hendricks is working on one of the best seasons ever by a starter at Wrigley Field with a 1.66 ERA in his 10 starts at home so far.
