4/28 Extra bases

* Rafael Dolis picked up his first save with two scoreless innings Friday against the Phillies. Dolis got his first win last week as well. According to Elias Sports Bureau, he is the first Cubs pitcher to record both a win and a save in his first 10 career games since Todd Wellemeyer did in 2003.

* Starlin Castro has eight stolen bases and Tony Campana has five, and they are the first Cubs duo with five apiece in the first month since 2006. Juan Pierre and Derrek Lee did so that April. So far, the Cubs have 15 stolen bases. They did not swipe their 15th last year until May 30, Game No. 52.

* Pitching matchups vs. the Phillies:

Saturday: Randy Wells vs. Joe Blanton

Sunday: Matt Garza vs. Kyle Kendrick

Monday: Chris Volstad vs. Vance Worley
