Boston Red Sox.............. .737 (14-5)
Chicago Cubs........... .714 (15-6)
Four teams at.................667 (14-7)


OFFENSE POWERS FOURTH STRAIGHT WIN: The Cubs, who notched their fourth-straight come-from-behind win with a 12-3 victory over San Diego last evening, tonight play the second of a four-game set against the Padres … this is the fifth game of a season-high, 10-game homestand against the Diamondbacks (3-0), Padres (1-0) and Pirates (3 games) … following this homestand, the Cubs will hit the road for a six-game trip against Houston (May 19-21) and Pittsburgh (May 23-25).

The Cubs are in the fifth game (4-0) of a stretch that sees them play 17 of 23 games at Wrigley Field … this follows a run that saw Chicago on the road for 11 of 14 games from April 23-May 7 – the Cubs went 5-9 in that span.

Chicago has won four straight and five of its last six
… this follows a stretch that saw Chicago go 4-9 from April 27-May 7
… the team had nine wins in a 10-game run from April 13-23, capped by the season-long six-game winning streak.

FULL OF LIFE: Last night vs. the Padres, Cubs hitters worked the count full nine times … on the season, Cubs hitters have worked a full count 241 times, second in the majors behind Texas (254).

Derrek Lee has reached a full count in 36 plate appearances this season, tied with the Mets David Wright for the N.L. lead
… Kosuke Fukudome is tied with Florida’s Hanley Ramirez for third, as both have had 35 plate appearances with a full count.

GOOD THINGS COME IN FIVES (OR MORE): The Cubs have scored five or more runs in 13 innings this season, by far the most in baseball
… Tampa Bay is second, having had eight innings with five or more runs scored.

Last night, the Cubs scored at least five runs in consecutive innings (six in the fifth and five in the sixth) for the first time since May 5, 2001 when they scored eight runs in both the seventh and eighth innings against the Dodgers.

MULTI-HIT GAMES ARE GOOD: Ryan Theriot went 2-for-3 with two walks last night vs. San Diego, notching his 17th multi-hit game of the season – that’s tied for second in baseball with Atlanta’s Chipper Jones … Philadelphia’s Chase Utley leads with 18 multi-hit games.

Kosuke Fukudome is second on the club with 14 multi-hit games.


WRIGLEY FIELD WINS: The Cubs have won 15 of their first 21 home games for the first time since 1985
… Chicago’s best home starts through 22 games are 18-4 (in 1907 and 1923), 17-5 in 1985 and 16-6 (nine times, last done in 1984).

The Cubs 15 home wins leads the majors while their .714 winning percentage ranks third.
The Cubs lead the majors with a .316 batting average, a .405 on-base percentage and a .505 slugging percentage at home this season.

BULLISH ‘PEN: Chicago’s bullpen has started this homestand with 11.2 scoreless innings, allowing just six hits and four walks while striking out eight and limiting opponents to a .162 batting average (6-for-37)
… overall, the bullpen has tossed 13.2 shutout innings dating to May 7 in Cincinnati.
Over the team’s last nine games, the Cubs bullpen has a 1.42 ERA (4 ER/25.1 IP), keeping the opponent off the board in eight of those contests.

BETTER LATE THAN NEVER: Chicago has 11 come-from-behind victories this season, third-most in the N.L.
… the Astros and Phillies lead with 12 come-from-behind wins apiece.

The Cubs have come-from-behind to win every game of this homestand
… yesterday, Chicago erased a 2-1 deficit with six runs in the fifth en route to a 12-3 win
… Sunday vs. Arizona, Chicago was down 4-2 before scoring two runs each in the seventh and eighth.

SERIES SPEAK: The Cubs are 1-4-1 in their last six series after going 5-1-0 in their previous six series
… Chicago is looking to win consecutive series for the first time since winning three consecutive sets from April 15-22: 2-1 vs. Reds, 3-0 vs. Pirates and 2-0 vs. Mets.

Chicago is 0-4-1 in its last five series against the Padres
… the Cubs last series win against them was in 2005, when they took three-of-four in San Diego, June 2-5.

WALKS, WALKS, WALKS: The Cubs have drawn 183 walks this season, second in the majors behind St. Louis (193)
… through 38 contests last season, Chicago had 122 walks.

If the Cubs were to keep up this pace (4.82 BB/G), they would draw 781 walks this season … the club record is 650 walks, set in 1975.

MOST WALKS IN 2008
Team Walks
St. Louis Cardinals......................193
Chicago Cubs........................183
Oakland Athletics.......................172
New York Mets...........................161
Texas Rangers...........................160

THERE ARE ALWAYS EXCEPTIONS TO RULES: The Cubs are 19-1 when scoring four or more runs in a game this season, 4-14 when scoring three runs or less … the Cubs are also 20-1 when leading after five innings this season, 3-14 otherwise.

RUNS APLENTY: Chicago’s 223 runs scored this season leads baseball … Boston is second with 209 runs scored while Arizona is third with 208 … the Cubs have averaged 5.9 runs per game, including a 7.1 mark at home (150 runs in 21 games).

COMPARE THIS…
The Cubs enter tonight’s contest one-game up in the N.L. Central with a 23-15 record … through 38 games last season, Chicago was 18-20 (and 18-21 through 39 games) – good for third place, 6.0 games back of Milwaukee … the Cubs are 15-6 in their first 21 home games this season - last year, Chicago was 10-11 through its first 21 home contests and did not win its 15th home game until June 15 (a 4-1 win vs. the Padres).

CUBS RECORD
2008 Overall: ........................................23-15
At Wrigley Field: ..................................15-6
On the Road: .......................................8-9
All-Time Since 1876: ..................10,008-9,473
At Wrigley Field (since 1916): .....3,842-3,380

CUBS VS. PADRES

The Cubs and Padres will meet seven times this season, all coming within a month’s time … besides this four-game set at Wrigley, the clubs will meet for a three-game series June 2-4 in San Diego … the two clubs will also meet for the Hall of Fame Game in Cooperstown, N.Y., June 16.

The Cubs are 0-7-2 in their last nine home series against the Padres since their last series victory at the Friendly Confines, a two-games-to-one win, June 1-3, 1999.
