* The Cubs took two of three games from the Rockies when these clubs met at Colorado in early April. The Cubs also are 19-6 over their last 25 games against the Rockies in Chicago (since 10/1/2006).

* The Rockies exploded for a 17-7 victory over Cincinnati on Sunday, scoring their most runs since an 18-9 win against the Mets on April 27, 2012.

* After getting no-hit by Cole Hamels on Saturday, the Cubs scored five times on Sunday but surrendered a season-high 17 hits in an 11-5 loss to Philadelphia. The defeat completed a three-game sweep by the Phillies at Wrigley Field.

* Ben Paulsen had a huge game on Sunday, collecting a single, triple and two home runs. The 12 total bases represented a season high for any Rockie, as Paulsen produced his first multi-homer game in the big leagues.

* While Jorge De La Rosa has compiled a 6.62 ERA at Coors Field this season, his mark on the road (1.93) is the fourth lowest in the National League (minimum 5 GS). The split reverses his experience over the past two years (2013-14), when De La Rosa fashioned a 2.92 ERA at Coors compared to 4.66 away from home.

* Kyle Hendricks established a career high when he struck out nine batters at Cincinnati last Wednesday. However, he also allowed five runs over six innings to end a stretch of four starts in which he had surrendered just one earned run over 26.0 innings (0.35 ERA).
