The Cubs go for the series win and Zambrano goes for lucky win number 13. A win today and the Cubs go 14-3-1 at series in Wrigley and their current 40-15 mark at home is their best start at Wrigley since 1916...which is when Wrigley opened. Some more fun with game notes...
- Cubs center fielders have combined for a league-leading .368 OBP and the Reed/Edmonds combo at center field has combined to hit .304 with 15 home runs and 65 RBI's.
- The Cubs haven't committed an error in 7 straight games.
- When the Cubs win, they've averaged 7.1 runs per game, when they lose: 2.6.
