6/4 Post-game Cubs notes
Carlos Marmol threw 1 2/3 scoreless innings to set the Cubs franchise record with 25 1/3 consecutive scoreless innings on the road. The previous mark was 24 innings, shared by Warren Brusstar and Lee Smith.
* Carlos Pena has hit five of his eight home runs on the first pitch.
* Tyler Colvin is in a funk. He’s hitless in his last 12 games (0-for-23).
* The Cubs now have lost a season-high five straight games after Saturday’s extra-inning loss, and dropped to 10-games under .500 at 23-33.
* Who would’ve thought this would be the Cubs’ lineup in early June? At the end of Saturday’s game, Darwin Barney was at short, DJ LeMahieu at second, Blake DeWitt at third, Tyler Colvin at first, Tony Campana in center, and Lou Montanez in left.
