9/7 Big 3-0

Derrek Lee belted his 30th homer in the first inning Monday, belting the first pitch from Daniel McCutchen to straightaway center. With the home run, Lee now is the eighth player to have at least three 30-homer seasons for the Cubs. The list includes Sammy Sosa (11 seasons), Ernie Banks (seven), Billy Williams (five), Ron Santo (four), Hank Sauer (four), Hack Wilson (four) and Aramis Ramirez (three).

The 30 homers are the most by Lee since he hit 46 in 2005.
